BOARD OF SELECTMEN 



To the People of Wilmington: 

The Board of Selectmen are pleased to submit to you the annual report 
for 1968. This report contains in some detail the activities of each 
of our town departments. We hope you will read this report carefully 
as it contains much information on the operations of the town. 

Wilmington is still a fast growing community and the demand for town 
services and School Department needs are ever growing. We are fortu- 
nate that our industrial expansion is continuing to help offset the 
rising taxes which these increasing services demand. 

However, Wilmington, like other Massachusetts communities, is entering 
a critical tax phase. It appears that the Commonwealth is insensitive 
to the tax burden on the homeowners, and, instead of providing assist- 
ance, will add to this burden by decreasing the amount of monies returned 
to Wilmington for tax relief. 

One member of the Board, Charles Black, for the first time in 33 years, 
has announced he will retire as selectman. Mr. Black has helped guide 
the town in its growth from a small rural town with a selectmen form 
of government to a metropolitan town of 17,000 with a town manager form 
of government. His hours of devoted service to our welfare are appreci- 
ated by all of us. As a small token of this appreciation, we dedicate 
this town report to him. 

Respectfully submitted, 

George W. Boylen, Jr., Chairman

OFFICE OF THE 
TOWN MANAGER 



AREA CODE 6l7 
6SS-33II 



To the Honorable Board of Selectmen and Citizens of Wilmington: 

Our Town, located in the most populated county in the United States, is experi- 
encing growing pains. The need for tax dollars to support the various municipal 
and metropolitan services will have a considerable impact during 1969. The 
Selectmen and Town Manager are facing a challenge in their respective duties to 
secure a dollar's worth of public service for every tax dollar spent. Increasingly, 
we are faced with the rising cost impact from other government units; such as, 
our cost for the County Tax, County Hospital, State Recreation Areas, Metropolitan 
Sewerage, Mass. Bay Transportation Authority, and Metropolitan Area Planning Council 
The added cost of the Welfare Medicaid Program will be reflected locally in more 
property tax dollars. 

The task, which lies ahead for each level of government in Massachusetts, is the 
judicious application of scientific, technical and professional know-how to cope 
with the true needs for community and area services. I think the handwriting is 
on the wall for more economy in our government, but the Great and General Court 
will find it necessary to permit local decisions on tax rates to be made locally 
before this issue will be resolved. The Wilmington taxpayer, in reality, controls 
less than thirty percent of his tax dollar. Reform by way of implementation of 
home rule, and a local option merit system are badly needed along with other mech- 
anism for modernizing local government. 

The progress which has been made in Wilmington is due to the leadership provided 
by the Board of Selectmen, and the cooperation of all town employees. We recognize 
also the many citizens who accept appointments on committees, boards and commissions 
for volunteering their time and talent for the advantage of our way of life and to 
preserve our system of local government. 

The Town of Wilmington will benefit most of all by your presence at Town Meeting. 
Please plan to attend. 



Respectfully submitted. 




Sterling C. Morris

Sarah D. J. Carter Lecture Fund 



[n the 60th anniversary year of the Carter Lecture Committee we offer a brief history, from the first records 
jf the Committee. 

[he donor, Mrs. Sarah Davis (Jaquith) Carter, was bom in Wilmington on March 24, 1832, daughter of Joshua 
ind Sabra (Cowing) Jaquith of the stock of early settlers of the to-wn. She was married to Cyrus Lewis Carter 
)n February 5, 1874 in Wilmington, and died in Wilmington November 28, 1907. 

following is the bequest contained in Mrs. Carter's will, which bore the date of November 26, 1907 and was 
idmitted to Probate in Middlesex County December 24, 1907 

"Eleventh: I give and bequeath to the Town of Wilmington the 
sum of Six Thousand Dollars, in trust to invest the principal 
sum and to expend the income in maintaining courses of lectures 
for the benefit of the people of Wilmington. I direct that the 
principal of this fund shall be invested only in such securities 
as may be a lawful investment for Savings Banks in this Common- 
wealth except that it shall not be loaned on the security of 
individual names. And should the principal of said trust be 
lessened by depreciation in the value of the securities in 
which the investment may be made, or by losses, then the in- 
come accruing from the investments shall be allowed to ac- 
cumulate and to be capitalized until the fund shall be restored 
to its original value of Six Thousand Dollars." 

'own Meeting March 1, 1909 - At the request of the Executor of Mrs. Carter's will the warrant for the Annual 
'own Meeting in Wilmington on March 1, 1909 contained the following: 

"Article 18. To see if the Town will vote to accept the bequest contained in the will of the late 
Sarah D. J. Carter, and determine how the same shall be cared for." 

he Town Clerk's record of the meeting tells of the following action: 

"Article 18. On motion it was unanimously voted that the Town of Wilmington accept the legacy of 
Mrs. S. D. J. Carter, and that the same be placed in the hands of the Board of Trustees 
of Trust Funds for investment, and the income derived therefrom be paid annually to a committee 
consisting of five members " 

owell Thomas, Thornton Burgess and Branson DeCoue were among those on some of the earlier programs. More 
ecently Dr. Murray Banks, Real Admiral Donald B. MacMillan, Captain Irving Johnson and John Roberts were with 
s. 

he Committee is very pleased to announce that the 60th anniversary program will be "Sandefjord - Her Voyage 
'round the World", the story of six young people and their 627 days in a reconditioned ketch, the "Sandefjord", 
trom South Africa around the world. In addition to the 8:15 program Friday Evening, March 28, 1969, in the 
lerbert C. Barrows Auditorium, the students in the High School will have an opportunity to see this outstanding 
irogram during school hours on the same day.

Planning Board 



The Wilmington Planning Board respectfully presents the following report of its progress and activities fo 
the year 1968. 

Planning Board activity during the past year, while substantial and stimulating, represented a constructi-w 
contribution to the future of Wilmington. In addition to its regular meetings on the second and fourth 
Tuesday evenings for sub-division work, the Board met on the alternate weeks to devote its time to plannin 
Public hearings were held relative to zoning and sub-division control; as well as a forum to officially la 
our Master Plan that was open to the public and to which All town officials, boards, commissions, departme 
and representatives of local industries were invited. The Board has maintained particularly close liaison 
with the Selectmen, Town Manager, Conservation Commission, and on many occasions has met with other boards 
and officials of the Town. 

The year began with a precedent; the election of the first woman to the chair of the Planning Board, 

Mrs. Theodore C. McKie. New members have been appointed to the Board during the year; and while we regret 

fully accepted the resignations of Mr. William Stickney, Mr. Frederick Arsenault, and Mr. Emil Berger, we ! 

were fortunate in gaining very capable members, Mr. William J. Hanlon, Mr. William G. Hooper, Jr. and 

Mr. Walter L. Hale, Jr. The reappointment of our hard-working member, Mr. Daniel J. Gillis was welcome ne: 

to the rest of the Board. 

Fifty-nine (59) applications for sub-divisions or lot approval were acted on during the year. The two lair 
industrial parks located adjacent to 1-93 have been developing rapidly and thereby, increasing the total 
assessed valuation of the Town. ! 

I 

Another large industrial development, located between Fames and Woburn Streets, is presently in its pre- I 
liminary stage. In that same area of Town, we have had several meetings with the Redevelopment Authority • 
regarding the land they have been authorized to assemble. 

Town Engineer, Arthur Harding, has proven an invaluable asset in this work as he provides the liaison betv^ 
the Board and those seeking its approval. His advice and assistance on engineering matters has given the ■■ 
Board the details necessary to make informed decisions. 

Shortly after the annual Town Meeting, an agreement was made with the Soil Conservation Service for a stuc 
and analysis of the types of soils found in the town. Samples were taken from various sections of the tov 
for tests which will result in a report to be incorporated into the Master Plan. 

• i 

Early in the year, a proposal for the relocation of Route 62 was brought before the Board by an engineerir 
firm working for the D.P.W. At a later date, another set of "route corridors" for the proposed relocatic 
of Route 62 - the so-called "Northerly and Southerly Corridors" - was presented. The Planning Board is ol 
the opinion that either corridor would provide a Berlin-wall type barrier to further split the town. Witt 
the railroad presently dividing the Town, this highway would successfully cut it into quarters. We are pi 
sently working with Representative Fred Cain and the Board of Selectmen in an attempt to find a solution v| 
would be amenable to the State and the Town as well. i 

A land use map has been completed on which every building in town is located. This, along with air photo ( 
of the entire community are a great asset to the various committees. 

Much time has been spent in the preparation of an Official Map with the able assistance of our consultant. 
Prof. Charles W. Eliot and Mr. Duncan Hughes, Planner. This map shows public ways and parks in existence.) 
private ways in existence and in use by more than two owners. An Official Map is invaluable in order to j 
clarify the uncertain status of private ways and premature subdivisions as it makes certain that all new t 
ing occurs on ways which have been adequately constructed. Such a map cannot be prepared casually, since 
is a legal document that is adopted by the Town Meeting. 

16 



! 



Amendments may be made by approval of the Town Meeting and by action of the Planning Board for the addition of 
proposed streets and public parks - thereby defining precisely the open space and circulation elements of the 
Master Plan. In other words, this helps to make it worki 

Dur "small lot" fight lost the first round in 1968. Bill S-834 did not "come out of committee" and never came 
before the Legislature to be voted on. It has been re-entered this year. An article entered in the 1969 March 
Town Meeting, if passed, would authorize the town to petition the General Court to enact special legislation. 
This would exempt Wilmington from those provisions of the General Laws which authorize building on lots having 
fifty feet of frontage on a public street. Check those woods next door - it may be too late when a house is 
juilt on that fifty foot loti 

[n Planning, as in every other field, discussions regarding low-cost housing are prevalent. Wilmington should 
Investigate proposed programs and evaluate them in the usual detailed manner before any decisions are made, 
'art of that decision should include the number of low-cost homes and small lots presently in existence. 
Jilmington already has: 

487 houses built en lots of less than 80 foot frontage 

679 lots which can be built on under the provisions of the General Laws 
251 lots of less than 50 foot frontage 
1417 is the total number of lots which are less than our present zoning by-law requirements 

iigain we say, these facts should be fully explored and evaluated before any decisions are made. 

'.ecreation and open space took a giant step forward when the March Town Meeting opened the door by voting to ac- 
uire four lots in Hathaway Acres Extension as part of a program of land acquisition for parkland purposes. As 

direct result of this realization by the townspeople that green areas enhance property values and provide 
pace for recreation for all ages; the Board has directed its attention, through its consultant and his able 
ssistant, Mr. Roy Mann, to the preparation of an open space map. This map will delineate the areas recommended 
or parks, playgrounds, trails, and greenbelts, wild-life sanctuaries, etc. in a coordinated pattern designed 
o provide for the future needs of the townspeople, 

t followed logically that from a study of open space, we should prepare a Conservancy District to preserve the 
etlands and to protect future home-owners from the disastrous effects of wet cellars during the annual flood- 
ng seasons. An article for the annual Town Meeting is being prepared which will propose that Wilmington voters 
pprove an amendment to the zoning by-laws to include a Conservancy District for the Town. 

public meeting in July introduced our consultant. Prof. Eliot, to the residents and business community and 
utlined the projects to be undertaken as part of the 701 Master Plan. The Board requested that suggestions be 
abmitted of areas which needed special attention and of which others were aware. A letter to the residents 
as published in the local newspaper urging written response outlining trouble spots. 

r. George Boylen, Chairman of the Board of Selectmen, attended a meeting to express the Selectmen's concern 
uJ sgarding traffic, circulation and other problems. A list of seven specific areas was given. 

:0V 

1. Study of Olsen Road - A plan was prepared by Prof. Eliot to extend Olsen Road in both directions. This 
roposed that a new by-pass be constructed from the area of Parker and Lowell Streets, running parallel with 
[in lin Street, crossing Church Street between the Fire Station and Post Office, in back of the shopping center and 
itersect Main Street at a point where the Shawsheen Ave. Bridge is proposed to be constructed. This proposal 

now in the hands of Rep. Cain who is investigating the possibility of the State funding the construction 
3sts as part of the overall circulation pattern of secondary roads in the State. 



2. Dispersal of traffic from the southern Industrial area - This is presently under study. 

3. Widening West Street to minimize prohibitive traffic - Funds have been allocated for an engineering 
uudy of this area. 

4. Study of the effect of Eames Street Redevelopment Project on traffic - A study is underway to investi- 
ite the possibility of a connecting road from the Redevelopment area to a proposed road in the Master Plan of 
le City of Woburn which would tie-in to Route 128. 

5. Flood Plain - As stated previously, the Planning Board is proposing that the Town adopt a Conservancy 
.strict for this purpose. 



17 



6. Traffic survey of Industrial development between Middlesex Avenue and Concord Street - to be studies 



7. Intersection of Woburn and Lowell Streets - This is presently under examination. Several proposals 
have been considered, none seem to solve the problem satisfactorily. 

Representatives of the School Committee and its Superintendent met with the Board to discuss their 
concern regarding possible acquisition of new school locations for (a) an intermediate school, (b) addition 
the high school, and (c) a new high school location. Prof. Eliot and the Board reviewed several sites propo: 
by the School Committee and reported to them. An area in the south-westerly part of town was recommended as 
the place for a new intermediate school with a suggested road to service it and to connect with the high sch. 
A suggested site for a new high school was thought not to be accessible and would add to the traffic burden. 
Recommendations were made regarding acquisition of land for a high school addition. 

Again, in an effort to be truly representative of the residents, a questionnaire was mailed throughout the tc 
in January, 1969. Questions regarding population, traffic patterns, policy for types of residential develop 
ment desired, policy for treatment of wetlands, shopping habits, size of buildings lots, what is "right" and 
"wrong" about Wilmington were asked. As of this writing, questionnaires are still being returned, and when 
returns are in, they will be incorporated into the Master Plan. 

The Planning Board wishes to thank its consultant for the numerous trips to Wilmington and the extra effort 
has given so freely. We wish to extend our gratitude also to the Town Manager, boards, committees, departme 
officials and the many individuals who have assisted us in our work. Without their help the planning proces 
could not be accomplished. 

"Make no little plans; they have no magic to stir men's blood and probably themselves will not be realized. 
Make big plans; aim high in hope and work, remembering that a noble, logical diagram once recorded will neve 
die, but long after we are gone will be a living thing, asserting itself with ever growing insistency. Reme; 
that our sons and grandsons are going to do things that would stagger us. Let your watchword be order and y? 
beacon beauty." - Daniel Burnham. 

PROGRESS REPORT 

The Comprehensive Planning "701" Project for Wilmington was launched at a meeting by a large number of Town 
Officials, representatives of the major Wilmington Industries and citizen organizations, and held at Sweethe 
Plastics on the evening of July 23rd, 1968. The Town Manager reviewed the opportunities for service and the 
duties of the Planning Board, and stated the problem as discovering "1) What is?, 2) What is wanted for the 
future? and 3) How do we get from here to there?" 

Mr. Frederick Fallon of the Planning Division, Mass. D.C.D., explained the role of the State and the three-w 
contracts covering the 701 Project. 

The Planning Consultant, Charles W. Eliot, reviewed the steps leading to the beginning of the 701 Planning 
Project as follows: 

The Planning Project for the preparation of a long-range Comprehensive General Plan for Wilmington was initi 
over two years ago by the Planning Board, and in December 1966 an application was filed with the State Depar 
ment of Commerce and Development for a "701 Project." Local funds appropriated by the Town Meeting and mate 
with monies generously contributed by Wilmington Industries provided $10,000 for the project and the U.S. 
Department of Housing and Urban Development has made a grant of $20,000 for "planning assistance." 

Contracts for carrying forward the Planning Project have been agreed upon and signed between the Town and th 
Department of Commerce and Development, and between the D.C.D. and the planning consultant selected by the 
Planning Board - Charles W. Eliot of Cambridge. They provide for completion of work and report on a "Scope 
of Services" on or before March 31, 1970 - or just after the 1970 Annual Town Meeting. 

The scope of Services, orglnally proposed for the planning project in March 1966, has been modified in the 1 
approved form to take into account the very significant work accomplished or under contract over the past tv 
years which has been financed by Town appropriations and contributions from Wilmington Industries. These ac; 
ivitles, undertaken by the Planning Board, have Involved various other Town Officers and Agencies who have p 
vided essential information and cooperated in developing policies and in carrying plans Into action. 

During 1966, Mr. Samuel P. Snow served as Planning Consultant and advanced work on the zoning map, a re-wrlt 
of the Subdivision Regulations and a survey of land uses along Interstate 93. The services of Charles W. El 



18 



rere also retained as Planning Consultant in 1966 and up to the signing of the "701" contract. Under his 
;eneral direction, Stephen Bartlett served as Town Planner on a full-time basis during the summer of 1967 and 
m a part-time basis until June 1968. Reports on problems of future Open Spaces , Tax Delinquent Properties 
.nd a map of Existing Land Uses have been prepared. Planning Consultant Charles E. Downe, with the assist- 
.nce of Charles Thomas, has advanced work on an Official Map to clarify the legal status of "ways" in Wilming- 
on. A contract with the Soil Conservation Service has been entered into for an " Operational Soil Survey " 
'hich is now under way and scheduled for completion by March of 1969. In December, 1967, a set of Air Photo- 
raphs was made at the expense of the Planning Board to provide the basis for up-dated base maps. The Town 
ngineer, Mr. Harding, provides review of subdivision projects, advice on land drainage and other engineering 
ervices. Over this same two year period 1966-1968 the Planning Board, with the help of its consultant, the 
own Counsel and other Town officials, has continued its efforts to improve the Zoning By-Law and has processed 

large number of subdivision projects. These activities and projects are being continued and further developed 
nder the 701 Project as they contribute to or become integral parts of the proposed Comprehensive General Plan, 
he Scope of Services for the Planning Project lists the studies, plans and reports which are to be prepared 
nd submitted on or before March 31, 1970 under the following headings: 

1. Base Maps 

2. Existing Land Uses - extending and analyzing previous work 

3. Land Suitability and Character - Soils, Geology, Topo, Wetlands, Ecology, etc. 

4. Questionnaire and Canvass by local organizations 

5. Historical Background 

6. Area of Influence - Regional Considerations 

7. Neighborhood Analysis 

8. Population Study 

9. Economic Base Study 

10. Circulation and Transportation Study 

11. Utility STudies and Plans - Water, Sewer, Drainage, Waste Disposal, etc. 

12. Community Facilities Study - Schools, Recreation, Open Space, Municipal 

13. Preliminary General Plan 

14. Special Area Studies 

15. "General Plan" Proposals with 

16. Reports on Proposals for Implementation through 

A. Capital Outlay Program 

B. Zoning Revisions 

C. Revision of Subdivision Regulations and 

D. Official Map 

17. A "Master Plan" Report 

le Progress of this work during the remainder of 1968 is reviewed, under these headings in a later section of 
lis report. Two points were stressed by the Planning Consultant on the occasion of the "launching" of the 
Lanning Project; - on the role of your Planning Consultant, and on the part to be played by the officials and 
2ople of the Town. 

is to the role of the Planning Consultant, - all too often cities and towns which employ one, seem to expect the 
jnsultant to know what problems are bothering the citizens and by some mysterious process come up with the 
iswers. If he works on the wrong problems or proposes an unpopular solution for a particular problem, then all 
le proposals in a general plan are ridiculed as impractical and the report is "put on the shelf." So, let's 
; clear about this from the outset: - The General Plan we - and I stress we are going to prepare will be pro- 
3sed by your Planning Board - not just by your Consultant. I am not going to tell you or the Board what you 
lould do or shouldn't do. When we have a problem, I will try to help in getting a clear statement of that pro- 
.em in supplying data concerning it, and in calling attention to facets which might otherwise be overlooked - 
ke Metropolitan Plans, State Laws and experience in other Towns. I will advise, but the decisions will be 
iken by the Planning Board on all the plans and proposals for presentation to the Town." 

"-he second point concerns the part to be played by the officials and citizens of Wilmington. This is your Town 
id neither the Planning Consultant nor your Planning Board can know what you want Wilmington to be in 1990 or 
le year 2000 unless you tell them and participate in making the plans to keep or change the Town in accordance 
.th your desires." 

'he Planning Project has been designed with heavy reliance on citizen participation. Throughout the Planning 
■oject, the participation of Town officials and Boards is essential. Your Consultant and the Planning Board 
iist rely on the special knowledge which you have - each in your own field. We don't want to duplicate efforts 

■ repeat projects already completed or under-way. On the other hand there are doubtless some data, programs 

■ projects which you have not had the funds or time to pursue.

Please let the Planning Board know about them, so that it can see how they may relate to the plans for i 
Wilmington's future. We are off on an adventure, - exploring the future and setting a course towards ful- 1 
fillment of our hopes for Wilmington." 

These efforts to elicit comments and suggestions for the 701 Project brought responses in the form of questic 
about Soil Survey in relation to School Sites and to work of the Board of Health; about the suggested invento 
of natural features in relation to Nature Study on School Sites and on sizes, ownerships and appraisals of 
possible school sites. There was renewed emphasis on traffic congestion - particularly near Industrial estab 
lishments and the need for a long range plan instead of patch-work alleviation of bad situations. Questions 
were raised about a local or regional hospital, about air pollution, and about "recreation" and the work of 
the Recreation Board. There was comment, too, on the danger that the Town might become just a "lot of build- 
ings and asphalt" and on the importance of attention to "esthetic qualities" and character with "street trees 
and grass." 

Work on these planning problems and projects since July has been in continuation of the previous efforts and 
necessarily adjusted to new situations and proposals which have a way of coming up and requiring special at- 
tention. For the work on the "701" Project the Planning Consultant has been able to get the assistance of 
Duncan I. Hughes (through a sub-contract with Nash-Vigier, Inc.) and of Roy Mann - (by direct sub-contract). 

Four Special Situations have come up: 

1. A proposal for a "Middle Belt" or " Route 62 Corridor " with a four lane - divided expressway across 
Wilmington. Three locations for such a Corridor, under design by Howard, Needles, Tammen & Bergendoff, were 
presented at the meeting of the Planning Board on August 20, 1968, and have been the subject of analysis and 
report by the Planning Consultant. At the request of the Town Manager and Planning Board, the Mass. Departme 
of Public Works allowed the Consultant access to the studies by the Highway Engineers. The project would h.a\ 
tremendous impact on the Town if constructed, and has therefore required special attention by the Planning 
Board and the Planning Consultant. The Middle Belt proposal also involves neighboring towns and the Metropol 
tan Area Planning Council. 

2. The collapse of the Shawsheen Avenue Bridge over the Railroad triggered action on plans for a grade 
separation to replace that bridge and the one at Bridge Street. The Planning Board has worked with the Selec 
men. Town Manager, Town Engineer and Representative Cain on this project which constitutes a relocation of 
Route 129 from Shawsheen Avenue near Aldrich Road to Main Street in the approximate line of Richmond Street. 

The work of the Planning Consultant on a Major Street Plan for Wilmington, and analysis of the available data- 
in "average daily traffic" and "road capacities" has revealed the urgent need for relief of the congestion on 
Main Street in the section where that street serves as both Route 38 and Route 129. The several earlier plan • 
for a by-pass on the east side of Main Street and the current proposals for a layout of Olson Road have been 
reviewed and developed by the Planning Consultant and Town Engineer as an"Alternate Route 129" which would i 
extend from Shawsheen Avenue at Aldrich, across Main Street and via Olson Road to Lowell Street near Adams 
Street. This project is now before the D.P.W. for study at the request of Representative Cain. 

3. The Open Space Plan developed by the Metropolitan Area Planning Council and the studies of the Ipswi 
River Watershed have both pointed to a large "Uplands Reservation" in Wilmington, Burlington and Woburn. The 
chairman of the Planning Board as the Town Representative on the M.A.P.C. has succeeded in qualifying the act i 
of the M.A.P.C. adopting the report on Open Spaces by requirement of a re-study of the project proposed for 
the Wilmington area. 

Meanwhile, the work on the Wilmington Comprehensive Plan by the Planning Consultant and Mr. Roy Mann has prod i 
preliminary plans for open spaces in the southwestern portion of the Town which can be alternatives or sub- 
stitute versions of the M.A.P.C. proposal. The M.A.P.C. is understood to be organizing a series of sub-regiC|l 
meetings during the spring months which will provide opportunity for further cooperative action on these pos-i 
sible open space plans by the towns involved. I 

I 

4. School Sites and Facilities . The report by Hill and Associates on projected School Population and r : 
for new School Facilities led to a joint meeting of the Planning Board with members of the School Committee, 
Permanent Building Committee and other Town Officials in September. The preferred solution of the immediate 
problem appeared to be: 

a. A new South Intermediate School of 18-20 rooms on a new site of 15-20 acres (or preferably more: 
and 

b. An addition and revision of the existing High School with added land. 



20 



he choice of site and extent of lands to be acquired are vital elements in the Comprehensive General Plan, 
he Planning Board and its Planning Consultant are eager to work with all the appropriate agencies on these 
roblems. 

n any review of planning progress it is important to keep in mind two aspects of "planning" work: - 

1. Since Planning is a "continuing process" the so-called Inventory items in the Scope of Services should 
e continuously studied and records up-dated right up to the date when the "Report" goes to press; and 

2. Since each of the "elements" in a general plan interacts with and on all of the other "elements" it is 
^possible, or certainly improper to "complete" work on any one element in advance of integration with the 
thers. 

he Status of Work and expected Program of Work on the several items in the Scope of Services is as follows: 

1. Base Maps . The two Town Maps at 600 scale with and without contours - have been developed, been titled 
tc. on Mylar or Sepia Prints, from maps made available by the Town Engineer and by photography from the U.S.G.S 
actional Maps are being prepared as needed from time to time from either the Air Pictures or Assessors Maps 

.th the cooperation of the Town Engineer, 

2. Existing Land Uses . The 1967 Survey is to be kept up to date. The tabulation of data has been com- 
Leted as of December 1968 and reported to the Planning Board in a memorandum on "Land Development Capacities." 

3. Land Suitability . The Inventory of Natural Features proposed to be prepared by the Conservation Com- 
Ission is not yet available. Preliminary maps have been received from the Soil Conservation Service on the 
Dil Survey which the Town contracted for prior to the 701 Project, and more complete reports are expected by 
arch 1, 1969. 

The report on "Land Development Capacities" referred to above utilized the information now available. 

have collected, are collecting, and will continue to collect and interpret data on physical conditions for 
[reparation of the final report. Data on Ipswich River Watershed and possible Impoundment Reservoirs and on 
stlands has been and is being analyzed. The study which the U.S. Corps of Engineers has agreed to make of 
lood Plains, Flood Frequency, etc. , has not yet been begun; nor has the Drainage Study which the Town expects 

get from Whitman and Howard, Engineers. 

A. Questionnaire . 3700 copies of a Questionnaire - as finally agreed upon after many drafts - were mailed 

1 January 4 and returns have begun to come back. The Planning Board decided to rely on mailing instead of a 
mvass. It is hoped that sufficient returns may be received to warrant tabulation and analysis before the 
irch Town Meeting. 

5. Historical Background . Collection of materials is proceeding with intent to include a draft report 
1 the Progress Report of February 1969. 

6. Area of Influence . The 701 Reports for adjoining towns have been reviewed in detail, and plans or 
■ojects of the MAPC, MBTA, Ipswich River Watershed, Lowell Region, Eastern Mass. Regional Planning Project 

id Department of Public Works have been and are being utilized or reviewed - including Open Space, Transpor- 
ition (Route 62 Corridor, Transit Extensions, etc.). Impoundment Reservoirs, Water and Sewer Facilities and 
ipulation Projections and "Density Umbrella" etc. This is again a subject which will require attention and up- 
iting throughout the 701 Project. 

7. Neighborhood Analysis . Neighborhoods have been delineated and analysis begun - again the report of 
i:velopment Capacities. We hope to get additional information on housing from answers to the Questionnaire. 
Errent work on the Open Space Plan will help to further define Neighborhoods. 

8. Population - The EMRPP and MAPC materials on Population are being utilized and the study of Develop- 
int Capacities has provided an alternative prediction. These estimates must, of course, be revised in detail 
i Neighborhood Analysis and Neighborhood Planning continues. 

9. Economic Base . It is intended that this study should be developed to a Preliminary Report during the 
irlng of 1969, and to that end, negotiations are being conducted for cooperation of "Wilmington Industries."

10. Circulation and Transportation . This subject has had a high priority in our work with special 
attention to the two routes for a proposed "Route 62 Corridor", the replacement of the Shawsheen Ave. Bridge ^ 
and the proposed "New Route 129." All of the available traffic data and capacity studies have been assembled 
and analyzed, and a preliminary plan and report on a Major Streets System has been submitted to the Planning 
Board. We shall continue revising that preliminary plan right up to the printing of the final report. 

11. Utility Studies . Just beginning, with intent to develop some preliminary findings during the next 
three or four months. 

12. Community Facilities. School sites have been studied in relation to current projects for a South 
Intermediate School and additions to the High School - based on the report of Hill & Associates. 

A preliminary Open Space Plan was presented with particular reference to Tax Title Properties in or 
adjoining sites for future public use. Like the Major Streets Plan, this preliminary Open Space Plan will be 
revised and adjusted as other plans are developed. 

13. A Preliminary General Plan will be presented to a general meeting of Town Officers on February 4, ISj 

I 

14. Special Area Studies are already under way in connection with highway zoning and open space proposal! 

15. The General Plan will have to go to press about December 1st, 1969 to be ready by the end of the 701! 
Contract and to be available for the 1970 March Town Meeting. It may be desirable to present some of the plarj 
ning proposals for zoning, official map, etc., to a Special Town Meeting. i

These figures show the many things that we are engaged with and the number of times we did this or did that. 
To most everyone who reads this report all it will be is just that; but to some who might have "been involved 
with us and made the so called list statistically" it will remind them of their involvement .... and they will 
appreciate the report a little more. To us, we of the Department, who have done the work.... we know of the 
time and effort that went into this production. 

At this time I would like to take this opportunity to inform all the residents of Wilmington, especially 

' those who have just moved into Town, that we operate twenty-four (24) hours a day every day of the year... 

1 that we have radio equipped patrol cars that these cars are out there ALL THE TIME AND IF YOU HAVE 

ANY REASON TO CALL THE POLICE PUT THAT CALL INTO THE POLICE STATION IMMEDIATELY I I ! I TOO MANY TIMES 

WE HEAR, "I WAS GOING TO CALL BUT FIGURED THAT BY THE TIME YOU GOT UP HERE THEY WOULD BE GONE". PLEASE 

PUT THAT CALL IN KNOWING THAT THE CRUISERS ARE OUT THERE AT ALL TIMES AND THAT IT IS POSSIBLE THAT 

ONE OF THEM MIGHT JUST BE DOWN THE STREET FROM YOU. Please call us I 658-3331 or 658-3332. 

Some of the Highlights of 1968 worthy of note : 

Two (2) new Police Officers voted by the people at the Annual Town Meeting. .. .Of fleer Bernard Nally came to 
us in April and attended the Northern Middlesex Police Academy at Lowell State College for six weeks and 
graduated in October. (Welcome to the team, Berniel ) . . . .Of f icer Robert LaRivee arrived late, coming to us 
in November. Too late to attend the Academy for sure; but he will make it next time around (April). (Welcome 
to the team, Bob I) 

Three of our Traffic Supervisors decided to "resign" this year. We said a "Fond Goodbye" to Pat Howlett - 
Grace Santo - and Jeanne Camber. (My sincere appreciation for a Job Well Done I).... To bridge the gap, we have 
appointed Rita Richardson - Phyllis Trefry - and Priscilla Cipriani. (Welcome to the Finest GroupI)....A 
new Traffic Supervisor was approved late in the year and this spot is yet to be filled.... 

; Officer Ritchie comes in for special thanks this year.... for the work he did in showing the film "The Friendly 
J Stranger" to all school children of the first six grades. This was done in April and May. .. .Of f icer Harvey 
: attended the F.B.I, refresher course in Firearms at Camp Curtis Guild in Wakefield for a week in October.... 
f A new base radio station was voted at the Annual Town Meeting and put into operation in June. (Thanks, Rod I) 
i On a personal note. I take great pride in info.rming you that I completed my twentieth year as Chief on 
October 20th. (1948-1968). 

Now for the part of this annual report I like best .... giving thanks to all those who do so much to make the 
operation of this department"Bearable" . 

1 To all the "Members of the Department" .... for the cooperation we get from all the Town Departments .... to the 
j Board of Selectmen and the Town Manager .... and to all the Residents who in anyway help us with our work 
throughout the year. 

To each of you, my most sincere thanksl And as we continue through the year 1969 we look forward to your 
continued cooperation for the better operation of your Police Department. 




Traffic Problems on Burlington Avenue

Town Engineer 



The requests for engineering services continued to increase during the year. The Town Engineer was assisted 
by two Northeastern University students, alternating between periods of work and study. These students are 
employed under the Cooperative Plan and change every three or six months. With this continual change of 
student employees quarterly, it is difficult to maintain continuing projects without constant supervision as 
the capabilities of the students change as a senior student may be replaced by a freshman student. 

Field surveys, calculations, plans and cost estimates were prepared for many projects, both approved and pro- 
posed, including layout for Ferguson Road, Elwood Road and Jere Road for construction under the Betterment 
Act; layout of Sudbury Avenue for installation of a water main and for proposed construction under the Bette: 
ment Act; numerous drainage projects constructed by the Highway Department, including Burt Road, Butters Row 
Chestnut Street, Bridge Lane, Woburn Street, Coolidge Road, and sidewalk construction of Burlington Avenue. 

Plans, specifications and contracts were prepared for the construction of Elwood Road and Jere Road by priva 
contractor, with the contract being awarded to the lowest bidder of seven bids received. Construction starti 
October 1st and was suspended December 7th, due to weather conditions with Jere Road being about 95% completi 



and Elwood Road about 75% complete, 
ing Department. 



This work required constant supervision and inspection by the Engineer- 



The Town Engineer met with the Planning Board at all of its regular and special meetings as an engineering 
advisor and acts as its agent in the inspection of construction of streets, utilities and storm drainage in 
all approved subdivisions. During the year construction was completed on Woodland Road and Hanson Road and 
continued on Chapman Avenue and Sheridan Road in Barrows Park; Hathaway Road, Draper Drive, Evans Drive and 
Buzzell Drive in Hathaway Acres; Wicks Circle in Pine Tree Park; Fordham Road in Wilmington Industrial Park;; 
Industrial Way and Progress Way in Route 93; Northern Industrial Park. Construction was started on Sheldon 
Avenue, Allen Park Drive and Fairmont Avenue in Allen Park; Nathan Road and Senpek Road in Wildwood Estates; 
Benson Road and Radcliff Road in Benson Park. 

Many study plans were prepared from property maps and aerial photo maps for proposed highway relocations, 
proposed school sites, and study plans for the Planning Board's "701" Master Plan. 

The Town Engineer assisted all departments requesting engineering services, but many requests remain un- 
filled because of lack of qualified personnel.

Highway Department 



I hereby submit my Annual Report of the activities of the Wilmington Highway Department for the year 1968. 

Drainage : We eliminated many problems this year. Burt Road was the most expensive and time consuming. Others 
were culverts installed off Clark Street, Federal Street, Cedar Swamp, Grove Avenue and Chestnut Street. 
Catch basins installed on Lawrence Street, Bridge Lane, Adams Street and Woburn Street. Catch basins and pipe 
installed on Butters Row, Pond Street, Grove Avenue and Lake Street, Woburn Street and Federal Street. 

Sidewalk Programs : Completed Burlington Avenue from Boutwell Street to Forest Street, Grove Avenue from Main 
' Street to Wild Avenue, Federal Street from Middlesex Avenue to Concord Street. 

Chapter 81 Maintenance : About 8 miles of streets were resurfaced all or in part. Streets included were: 
Swain Road, Roosevelt Road, Chestnut Street, Butters Row, Burlington Avenue, Clark Street, Aldrich Road, Grant 
' Street, Dublin Avenue, Middlesex Avenue, Temple Street, Hilltop Road, Meadow Lane, Washington Avenue, Hillside 
' Way, Bridge Lane and Thurston Avenue. All streets were swept. All catch basins and culverts were cleaned and 
I checked. All streets were cleaned of brush by spraying or cutting. 

I Chapter 90 Maintenance : $4,499.98 was spent for hot top for Shawsheen Avenue from Carter Lane to the cranberry 
i bog. 

1 Chapter 90 Construction : Burlington Avenue was constructed from Dell Drive to Boutwell Street. The Highway 
I Department also put the finish hot top on Burlington Avenue from Dell Drive to Roosevelt Road, which wasn't 
I finished in 1967 due to cold weather. This was. the last Chapter 90 project to be constructed with town forces. 
.'All future projects will be let out on contract. 

I' Work Performed for Other Departments : Maintenance Department: We finished the tennis courts at the Boutwell 
School and North Intermediate School. Put finish hot top on the Wildwood School play area. Swept all school 
} yards . 

[Cemetery Department: We hauled fill and loam for the addition to the cemetery and spread it. 

I Tree Department: Two men and the loader worked for seventeen days to help the Tree Department remove some big 
I trees. 

I Water Department: The grader was used for two days to scrape well field roads. 

!\A11 regular highway maintenance work was carried out during the year ; such as street patching, sweeping, erec- 
t tion of street signs, cleaning catch basins, scraping back roads, etc. 

S Snow and ice removal still remains a major and very expensive problem. 

Equipment : My mechanics, foreman and I have checked over the equipment and sincerely conclude we must trade 
t two dump trucks, two pickup trucks, buy a new chassis and cab for the catch basin cleaner, trade in the grader. 

II am also asking for an addition to the fleet which is a truck equipped with an eight inch earth auger and 
56,000 pound winch. This truck will be used to great advantage for installing guard rail and sign post. This 
<will also be used as a maintenance truck. 

[In concluding this report, I would like to thank all Town departments for the cooperation extended this depart- 
ment in 1968. To the Town Manager and the Board of Selectmen for their support throughout the year. To the 
imen of the Highway Department for their every effort to the accomplishments of the Highway Department in 1968, 
la most sincere expression of . thanks and appreciation. On April 29, 1968, I was appointed Superintendent of 
'Streets, upon the retirement of James H. White.

Public Library 



During 1968, the following progress was made in acquiring a new library facility for the Town: 



1. Site preparation began early in 1968 following the award of the library construction 
contract by the Permanent Building Committee. It is anticipated that 

building construction will be completed early in 1969. 

2. Major furniture and equipment contracts were also awarded during 1968. 

It is estimated that delivery and installation of these various items will 
not occur before April, 1969. 



The Library Trustees and Librarian have been variously occupied during the year in their efforts to cater to 
the demands of an existing library operation, actively participating in the construction and equipping of the 
new facility, and in planning the staffing and operation of the new library. 

We, along with the library patrons, look forward to the opening of the Wilmington Memorial Library during 196 



The circulation figures for 1968 represented an increase of 8,792 over 1967 - this constitutes approximately 
a 10 percent increase in circulation. There was an added impetus on the borrowing of materials from other 
sources in order to supplement the library's holdings and to give improved service to the library patrons. 

The library's processing operation was moved to rented quarters to facilitate the transition into the new 
library. It was necessary to remove the library's recordings to these temporary quarters. It was felt that 
the books were of primary importance; any temporary inconvenience to our recording users is regretted. 

On July 1 a new charge system was installed in order to more efficiently serve the library user. 

The story hour continued as successfully as before, and was expanded in scope by addition of Mrs. Sullivan 
to the very efficient, capable and devoted trio of Mrs. MacDonald , Mrs. McKie, and Mrs. Passmore.

Board of Registrars 



In accordance with Section 1, Chapter 3, of the Town By-Laws, meetings of the Board of Registrars are held 
on the second Monday of each month for the registration of voters and the conduct of business. Uner Chapter 
626 of the Acts of 1958, this meeting is open to the public and the press, and it is so posted in the Town Hall. 

The Board held five (5) all-day registration periods adding a total of three hundred ninety-six (396) voters 
to the list. There were seventeen (17) day and evening sessions to certify names on nomination papers, and 
Warrant Articles. 

Women married prior to January 1 must re-register under their marriage name. Naturalized citizens must have 
their naturalization papers with them when registering. 

In order to keep the voting list as up-to-date as possible, the Board annually compares the voting list with 
the yearly census. If a voter's name does not appear in the census, it is subject to removal from the voting 
register. 

New residents are requested to notify the Board of Registrars of the date which they take residence in the 
(town . Any change of address within the town during the year should be brought to the attention of the board 
so that your name will not be removed from the voting list inadvertently.

Despite a decline in total gallons pumped in 1968 which was due to a markea decrease in consumption by two 
large industrial consumers and a relatively cool summer, the Commissioners plan to start engineering for 
construction of a pumping station at the Salem Street well field. In conjunction with the new station there! 
will be new connecting mains installed from the easterly side of Wilmington to the Shawsheen Avenue well fiel 
on the westerly side of Town. The additional pumping station and connecting mains will not only contribute 
to the reliability of the total water supply, but will alleviate an existing pressure problem now affecting 
industrial fire protection in the northern part of Town.

Tree Department 



j During the year 1968, the Tree Department carried on its usual work of tree removal, trimming and removing 
broken limbs, and removing dead wood. Some of these trees are diseased or dead and are taken down, removed 
to the Town tree dump and burned to prevent disease from spreading to other trees. We continue to trim trees 
around fire alarm systems. Eighteen trees were treated and fed this year. The Christmas tree on the common 
was decorated again this year under the supervision of the Tree Warden. This tree is called the Herbert C. 
Barrows Christmas Tree. One hundred and five Norway Maples were planted on different streets as requested. 
Twenty- three trees were removed on Elwood Road and eight on Jere Road for road construction. The Tree Depart- 
ment plowed snow with the Highway Department. We cut three large trees in back of the new library, and trees 
around the highway garage for the new highway garage addition. 



Moth Department : 

We sprayed all shade trees in the Town with D.D.T., and malthion for gypsy moth, tent caterpillar, pine shoot 
land oak blight. 

Elm Leaf Beetle & Dutch Elm Disease: 



trhe elm leaf beetle spraying program starts in April and continues into August. This year 50 elms were lost k 

Ithrough dutch elm disease. Eighty samples were sent to Amherst State College to be tested. We have removed 

kbout twelve large stumps with the new stump cutter we received in the middle of October. This work was former- (| |

During the months of August and September within a period of sixteen days, the Cemetery Department received 
about twenty thousand yards of fill free of cost. At the same time the fill was being hauled in, the con- 
tractor, M. DeMatteo Construction Company of Quincy had a bulldozer here to push the fill back and to see 
that the trucks did not get stuck. He also leveled the fill that the Highway Department hauled in, cleared 
out brush and made us a road through the woods: an estimated amount of thirty-two hundred dollars worth of 
bulldozer work, and this was at no cost to the Town. This fill is to be used as a base. There will be a 
depth of about five feet of good fill to go over this base. 

About four thousand dollars worth of gravel and loam was purchased for grading purposes. Shrubs were pur- 
chased and planted in new areas. The Highway Department continues to haul excess fill to our fill projects 

The Parks, the Common and the Town Beach were maintained as usual. The diamond at the Town Park has been 
renovated. The Highway grader was used to cut all the sod from the area. An amount of sand and loam was 
hauled in and will be rototilled and graded in the spring of 1969. The Town purchased a new sixty-foot 
aluminum flag pole which was placed in the center of the Common. 

Sincere thanks is extended to all Town Officials and Departments for their cooperation and assistance durin 
the year.

Public Buildings Department 



To the Board of Selectmen and Citizens of Wilmington, I respectfully submit my fifth annual report on behalf 
of the Public Buildings Department. 

'The two tennis courts located at North Intermediate and Boutwell Schools were completed in the spring of 1968 
in time for the start of the tennis season. They are now flooded and are being used for ice skating. 

The Town Park Softball lighting system was installed by the department and electrical contractor as per vote 
of the Annual Town Meeting. The project was completed on October 13, 1968. 

Construction was started on the addition to the Highway Garage in October of 1968 and work progressed until 
December 23, 1968, when the weather forced us to halt laying cement block. The addition will be completed in 
the spring of 1969. 

Throughout the year the department has carried on the continuous work of cleaning, painting and repairing the 
plant facilities of the various Town=owned buildings. All boilers and burners were overhauled and inspected 
as per regulations. 

IThe department took control of the Woburn Street School addition in February 1968. This addition doubled the 
size of the building and required an extra custodian to bring the staff up to the level of three. 

iln conclusion, on behalf of the department I would like to thank the various employees and Town officials for 
the cooperation extended in the year 1968.

Measles was the target for final eradication in Massachusetts in 1968. The measles program started during 
1967 was completed this year. 19,512 cases of measles were reported in Massachusetts in 1965 compared with 
approximately 400 cases in 1968. 

A Tuberculin Testing Program was conducted in the schools in a continued attempt to identify sources of 
tuberculosis infection. A total of 725 children in grades 1 and 9 were tested with all negative results. | 

During the year, an afternoon pre-school immunization clinic was started. The attendence however has been | 
disappointing. 

In January of 1968 a mumps vaccine was licensed. In accordance with the recommendations of the American :| 
Acadamy of Pediatrics and other official health agencies, grades 7, 8, and 9 were given the mumps vaccine. :i 
During three clinics a total of 323 doses of the vaccine was given. It is anticipated that the mumps vaccinfiil 
will be made available to other age groups in 1969. 

In December of 1967 a new law went into effect, making immunizations of whooping cough, diphtheria, tetanus, ■' 
polio and measles mandatory upon entering school. During 1968 three clinics were held for grades 1 thru 8 
to make available the necessary Immunizations. !

any future contingency. 

Garbage Disposal 

There were no significant changes related to garbage collections in 1968. The garbage contract 
expires in April 1969. The Board held some preliminary talks with the contractor on the forthcoming 
contract. These showed that there would be substantial increases in the next contract. 



Food Sanitation 

The Board continued their efforts during the year to maintain a fairly high standard of sanitation 
in the local food establishments. Approximately $20,000 worth of food was condemned during the year 
Some foods from mobile canteens have been confiscated and discarded for failure to comply with the 
sanitary code.

Recreation Commission 



The Recreation Commission hereby submits its annual report for consideration: - 

There has been a growing trend on the part of the residents in Wilmington, in support of planning and develop- 
ment of recreational programs and facilities. This past year many individuals and groups have met, made 
suggestions, and offered support for program improvement. In cooperation with these groups, the commission 
has increased its meeting sessions so that all may be heard. 

In addition to the regular accepted programs being offered, the installation of lights at the town park will 
make it possible for increased programs. This year also saw Wilmington's first Recreation Tennis Tournament 
which was highly successful, due to the assistance of volunteer workers under the direction of Mr. Ken Lyons, 
and Mr. Norm Pederson. 

Ice Skating and Ice Hockey facilities are much in demand, and to this end practice sessions for beginners 
have been held at the Andover Rink each Sunday afternoon, three tennis courts are being made available in the 
town, and lights have been installed at the Town Beach for late evening skating for all the members of the 
family . 

The Recreation Commission has been working on budget requests which will include program improvements and 
additional activities such as flag football, tennis instruction, girls Softball, additional playground areas, 
and night softball and football.

Permanent Building Committee 



The Permanent Building Committee of the Town of Wilmington, consisting of Robert B. Michelson, Chairman, 
Raymond G. McClure, Secretary, William R. Harrison, John M. Callan and Lionel M. Baldwin, respectfully submits 
its Annual Report for the year 1968. 

Considerable activity and progress was made during the year 1968 toward the fulfillment of the building pro- 
gram for the Town of Wilmington. The addition to the Woburn Street School, consisting of 15 classrooms, 
library, gymnasium, and other specialized rooms and areas was completed and occupied in January, 

The Permanent Building Committee, acting in conjunction with its architectural consultant and the Board of 
^1 Library Trustees, formulated final plans for the new Wilmington Memorial Library. Upon the opening of bids, 
II the contract for construction of the building was awarded to the low bidder, A. T. Scanzillo Company, on 
|- April 8, 1968. Construction was commenced immediately, and the target date for completion is the end of 
h. February 1969. 



i The Annual Town Meeting approved revised plans and specifications for the proposed Shawsheen Avenue School y, 

/ which plans were prepared by the Permanent Building Committee, working in conjunction with its architectural j 

; consultant, the Superintendent of Schools and the School Committee. General bids opened on August 29, 1968 ^ 

were in excess of the appropriation and an additional sum was voted at a Special Town Meeting on September 30, rj 
' 1968 enabling the contract to be awarded to the low bidder M. Spinelli & Sons Company. Actual construction 

of the new elementary school consisting of twenty-two classrooms, cafeteria, library, gymnasium, and other ' 

specialized rooms and areas on the twenty acre site is now underway. j 

The Permanent Building Committee extends its sincere thanks to the Town Officials, both elective and appointed, | 

and to the townspeople for their support and assistance during this past year. J

Conservation Commission 



This is the fifth annual report of the Wilmington Conservation Commission. During 1968, in keeping with our 
objectives of safekeeping, maintaining, and improving the town's natural resources, we present the following 
highlights of our activities. 

1. Work was started on improvement of the Town Park area. Mr. Frank Tuttle is in the process of classi- 
fying wildflowers and other plants and selecting areas for preservation, for nature studies, and paths. With 
the assistance of Mr. Tuttle and Boy Scouts from Troops 56 and 63, the Commission cleared five truck loads of 
trash and litter from the park. The trucks were donated by the Highway and Water Departments. 

2. Signs have been made to be erected in the spring; a large one for the Town Park and others for 
Conservation Commission controlled areas in town. 

3. We again sponsored two Wilmington boys to attend the Massachusetts Junior Conservation Camp in July. 
The camp provides instruction in water and soil conservation, forestry and wildlife management, use of firearms, 
fishing, and small boat handling for boys 14 to 17. 

4. As a part of our annual planting program, we provided several Weeping Willows which were planted 
last spring at the West Intermediate School. 

5. Under the sponsorship of the Commission, the Massachusetts Audobon Society presented two programs in 
Wilmington this year; one on water pollution for the Scouts, and one on the Monarch Butterfly for Mr. Ambrose's 
elementary school district. 

6. The Conservation Commission supported the passage of the Inlands Wetlands Bill by attending hearings 
and correspondence with our State legislators. 

7. During the past year, the Commission strengthened their relationships with the other town boards, 
particularly the Planning Board and Recreation Commission, and met with the elementary school principals for 
discussions on Conservation Education. 

8. A questionaire relating to town opinion on Conservation matters was prepared for circulation the first 
part of 1969.

Veteran^s Agent 



The Wilmington Veterans' Agent respectfully submits his annual report for the year 1968. Paul A. Farrell, 
Veterans' Agent and Mrs. Julia Meads, Secretary. 

Veterans' Services is governed by the General Laws of Massachusetts, Chapter 115, with strict compliance to 
this chapter, the rules and policies of which govern the disbursement of aid. 

Benefits are for the needy veteran and his immediate family who have been subjected to unforeseen needs. 
Final approval of benefits comes from the Commissioner of Veterans' Services, Boston, Massachusetts. 

The appropriation for 1968 was $50,000, as voted at the annual Town Meeting. 

Total expended for aid to Veterans and their families was $68,694.57. In August $10,000 was transferred to 
Veterans' Services from the Reserve Fund and again, in October, $8,000 was transferred to Veterans' Services 
from the Reserve Fund as a result of department requests to the Finance Committee. The original department 
request prior to Town Meeting was for $60,000. Total reimbursements from settled assignments on accident '>\ 
cases amounted to $2,166.50; of this amount, because 50% is shared by the Town, the Town's share is $1,083.25. jj 
The total amount has been turned over to the Town Treasurer, and the Commonwealth has been notified so adjust- p 
ment of any monies can be made before State reimbursements to the Town. "I , 

Case load has increased, as has the Town's population increased. Also, this department is now aiding return- f si 
ing Vietnam veterans. j ^

Redevelopment Authority 



The Wilmington Redevelopment Authority is proud to announce that it has completed its portion of the Planning 
Study. 

' However, because it is the desire at all times to cooperate with other Town Boards and Committees, we are 
now engaged in a separate study of the feasibility of Land Assembly only. 

We wish to thank all those involved for their splendid cooperation during this past year.

Preliminary plans were approved on January 2nd by the School Building Assistance Bureau. Meetings were held 
with representatives of the Bureau of Vocational Education and the shop and laboratory layouts were reviewed 
and approved. Because of the nature of this type of school, considerable time was spent by the members of 
the Committee in reviewing facilities and equipment needed for each shop or laboratory. The final plans and 
layouts received approval from the School Building Assistance Bureau, Bureau of Vocational Education and the 
School Lunch Program Bureau. 

Contracts for site clearance and test borings were awarded, and this work was completed in preparation for 
the school building. The Site Committee was quite active in negotiating with the owners of the property 
relative to an equitable settlement. This settlement was reached and final payment was made on the property 

Since the school will be built in Billerica, copies of the final plans were submitted to Mr. Corliss, 
Executive Secretary of the Board of Selectmen, Town of Billerica. These plans will be reviewed by various 
town officials including the Chiefs of the Fire Department, Police Department, and the building inspector. 

Authorization was received from the Emergency Finance Board to borrow $3,925,000 for the construction and 
eouipping the school. 

56 



Legal notices were published in the trade papers, as well as the local papers, reauesting bids for erection 
and completion of the school building. Bids are expected to be received at the District office, and it is 
anticipated that the construction award will be made early in I969, and that actual building will start in 
February or March of 1969- 

Equipment specifications have been completed and during the year I969, it is expected that arrangements will 
be made to secure the necessary equipment for the school. The present plans call for the school to be opened 
in September of 1970. 

A number of candidates were interviewed for the position of C 1 erk-of -the-Works . Mr. Michael J. Boyle was 
appointed to this position and will start after the construction contract is awarded. 



REPORT OF THE SUPERINTENDENT-DIRECTOR 

During this past year, all efforts have been concentrated on completion of plans in order to start the actual 
construction of our school building. In planning our school, one objective was to have it operate at maximum 
efficiency and to have as complete utilization of space as possible. It was also felt that because of the 
technical nature of our project that it was essential to have as much flexibility as possible in order to 
comply with advancements and changes in our technological society. I found the greatest source of information 
was in visits to similar schools and to evaluate their physical plants and methods of operation. In this way, 
we could hopefully learn by their experience and not duplicate certain deficiencies that were found to exist. 
The coordinated effort on the part of members of the School Committee, State Supervisors, Representatives 
from industry. School Personnel from vocational technical schools all helped in finalizing our plans. 



The physical preparation for our project involved the necessary preliminary work. This consisted of borings, < 

site clearance and location of the leaching field. In addition, the officials of the Town of Billerica have ' |i 

been most cooperative, and a plan has been initiated to improve the Cook Street area in the vicinity of the J | 

school so as to minimize traffic hazards. if 

' S 

'I 

The major activities in the year ahead will involve not only the actual construction, but also the purchas- 
i ng of equipment to furnish the school. In order to take advantage of any surplus equipment made available -I 
through state and federal agencies, applications were completed and approved so that our project would be • ^1 

eligible for such equipment. It is anticipated that acauiring such eouipment will cut down on the ultimate ! 2| 

cost of our school . : 5 

Because of the nature of this type of educational facilities, an Operational Schedule was developed which 
will serve as a guide to insure that all details are taken care of and that the school will be ready to admit 
its first students in September of 1970. 

The value of vocational technical education has been realized by the Federal Government as seen by the en- 
actment of the Vocational Education Act of I968. It is expected that funds from this Act will double the 
amount of money that has been available for vocational education in the State of Massachusetts. Legislators 
on the national, state and local levels have come to realize the need to assure that persons of all ages in 
our communities will have access to vocational education opportunities that are suitable to individual needs 
and realistic in light of employment opportunities. It has been encouraging in view of increasing school 
costs to find that considerable funds will become available and result in a lower ultimate cost to the local 
taxpayer for our school project. Mr. Walter J. Markham, State Director of Vocational Education, indicated 
that we can anticipate a minimum of federal funding of 10% of the cost of building and equipment. We, 
therefore, can expect approximately $400,000 in federal funds to pay part of the cost of our project. In 
addition, the state will pay during the first year of operation of our school the total salaries of the 
professional staff except academic instructors; during the second year 75%, and during the third year, 50%. 
These actions on the part of state and federal agencies symbolize the great importance of this type of 
education, not only in local communities, but for the nation as a whole. 

The culmination of our plans have been the result of the efforts of a great number of people and although 
it is difficult to specifically recognize the efforts of each individual, I feel certain that all those 
involved will enjoy the satisfaction in having participated in such a worthwhile project.

STATE ELECTION - WILMINGTON, MASSACHUSETTS 
HIGH SCHOOL GYMNASIUM, CHURCH STREET - November 5, 1968 

To either of the Constables of the Town of Wilmington: 

GREETINGS: In the name of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and in the manner prescribed in the By-Laws of 
said Town, you are hereby directed to notify and warn the inhabitants of the Town qualified by law to vote, 
to meet and assemble at the High School Gymnasium on Tuesday, the fifth day of November next at 5:45 o'clock 
in the forenoon, the polls to be open at 6:00 a.m. and shall be closed at 8:00 p.m., for the election of the 
following: Electors of President and Vice President; (1) Representative in Congress; (1) Councillor; 
(1) Senator; (1) Representative in General Court; (2) County Commissioners; (1) Sheriff; and vote YES or NO 
on the following questions: 

QUESTION NO. 1. Proposed Amendment to the Constitution 

Do you approve of the adoption of an amendment to the constitution summarized below, which was approved 
by the General Court in a joint session of the two branches held June 16, 1965, received 210 votes in the 
affirmative and 26 in the negative, and in a joint session of the two branches held May 10, 1967, received 
220 votes in the affirmative and 9 in the negative? YSS 

NO 

SUMMARY 

The proposed amendment of the Constitution increases from five days to ten days the period of time the 
Constitution gives the Governor to act upon measures passed by the Legislature and submitted to him for 



78 



approval. No other changes are made in the several Constitutional provisions relative to action by the 
Governor upon such measures. 

QUESTION NO. 2. Proposed Amendment to the Constitution 

Do you approve of the adoption of an amendment to the constitution summarized below, which was approved 
by the General Court in a joint session of the two branches held August 30, 1966, received 188 votes in the 
affirmative and 46 in the negative, and in a joint session of the two branches held May 10, 1967, received 
174 votes in the affirmative and 78 in the negative? YES 

NO 

SUMMARY 

The proposed amendment to the Constitution authorizes the Legislature to impose an income tax graduated 
according to total income, and authorizes the granting of reasonable exemptions, deductions and abatements, 
as an alternative to the exercise of the Legislature's existing power to tax income under Article 44 of the 
Amendments to the Constitution. Without limiting the foregoing authorization, the proposed amendment permits 
any such tax to be imposed at a uniform percentage of an individual's federal income tax liability or at 
graduated rates applied to his total income taxable federally, and it permits reasonable variations of any 
federal provision. It requires that the graduated rates, exemptions, and deductions be set without regard to 
the kind of income being taxed. 

QUESTION NO. 3. Proposed Amendment to the Constitution 

Do you approve of the adoption of an amendment to the constitution summarized below, which was approved 
by the General Court in a joint session of the two branches held July 20, 1966, received 225 votes in the 
affirmative and 1 in the negative, and in a joint session of the two branches held June 15, 1967, received 
210 votes in the affirmative and 2 in the negative. YES 

NO 

SUMMARY 

The proposed amendment of the. Constitution defines the circumstances in which a Governor's inability to 
perform his functions shall cause his office to become vacant, and it establishes a procedure for making the 
lecessary determinations. The office will become vacant following a declaration of disability by the 
Governor himself or by the Chief Justice and a majority of the Associate Justices of the Supreme Judicial 
Tourt, or such other body as the Legislature may provide. The vacancy will terminate four days after the 
Governor declares that no disability exists, unless (1) within that period the Chief Justice and majority 
3f the Associate Justices, or such other body provided by the Legislature should make a contrary declaration 
and (2) within another stated period the Legislature, by two-thirds of each branch present and voting, then 
letermines the issue contrary to the Governor's declaration. 

The same procedure will also apply to a Lieutenant Governor who in the case of a vacancy is performing 
the Governor's duties. 

The proposed amendment also requires the election of a Governor for the unexpired balance of the four- 
year term if a vacancy in the office of Governor as described in the proposed amendment continues for a six- 
■nonth period expiring more than five months prior to a biennial state election other than an election for 
Governor . 

QUESTION NO. 4. Law Proposed by Initiative Petition 

Do you approve of a law summarized below, upon which the House of Representatives did not vote and upon 
which the Senate did not vote? YES 

NO 

SUMMARY 

The proposed law provides that the official ballot in the biennial State election for the year 1970 
Ishall contain a question asking the voters whether there shall be a convention in 1971 to (1) revise, alter 
or amend the constitution of the Commonwealth on the following subjects insofar as they relate to the 
Structure of government and no others; the Executive Branch; the General Court; the Executive Council; the 
government of cities, towns and counties and their relationship to each other and to the government of the 
Commonwealth; (2) simplify and rearrange the constitution, and (3) provide methods of amendment thereof. 
The question will state that the convention shall not consider or propose any measure which relates to the 
Massachusetts Declaration of Rights, the provisions of the Massachusetts constitution concerning the 
'Judiciary Power" (other than provisions respecting the Executive Council), or any of the excluded matters 
enumerated in Article XLVIII,II, Section 2 of the Massachusetts constitution. The question will fix the 
lumber of delegates to the convention at 150, of whom 20 members shall be members of the General Court; the 
remaining 130 members shall be elected by the voters in the manner summarized below. The question will also 
tstate that the convention shall conclude its business not later than 120 days from its first session. 

The proposed law provides that if a majority of the votes on the foregoing question is in the affirma- 
tive, the convention shall be held in July, 1971 to revise, alter or amend the constitution on the matters 



79 



enumerated above only. The House of Representatives and the Senate shall each elect as delegates 10 of its 
members, not more than 6 from each branch coming from the same political party. Of the remaining 130 dele- 
gates, 10 shall be elected at large and 120 shall be elected from the 40 senatorial districts, 3 from each. 
Provision is made for the manner of nominating and electing these 130 delegates, without party or political 
designation, for filling vacancies occurring in the position of any delegate, from whatever source chosen, 
and for the conduct of the convention's business. 

Any revisions, alterations and amendments of the Massachusetts constitution adopted by the convention 
shall be submitted to the people at the State election in 1972 for their ratification and adoption in such 
manner as the convention may direct. If a majority of the people voting thereon ratify and adopt such re- 
vision, alteration or amendment, the constitution shall be deemed to be changed accordingly. 

The proposed law also provides that if the vote on the question to be submitted at the biennial State 
election in 1970 is in the affirmative, the Governor shall appoint a preparatory commission of 5 members to 
compile data to aid the convention in the discharge of its duties. Each member of the commission shall re- 
ceive compensation of $10,000 and the commission may expend a sum not in excess of $200,000, as the Governor 
may approve for its expenses.

BOARD OF SELECTMEN 



On behalf of your Board of Selectmen, it gives me great pleasure to submit the 
1969 Annual Report to you. 

We were very proud this year to see the completion of the new Memorial Library, 
a building that is a landmark in our Town; also, the new elementary school on 
Shawsheen Avenue, not to mention the industrial growth that is a credit to our 
Town, like the buildings of Volkswagen, General Electric and approximately thirty 
other industries that have located within our Town. This industrial growth has 
helped to offset the rising taxes. 

We are very sensitive to the demands of our citizens who now number about seven- 
teen thousand, the tax burden and the increasing demand upon our public facilities. 
These problems are compounded by the Commonwealth dwindling away at our Home Rule 
and not providing adequate disbursement of funds to the towns, resulting in the 
constant increase in our taxes. We are continually working with our representatives 
to try to prevent the Commonwealth from dictating how we should run our own Town. 

The Board of Selectmen have worked for closer relationship with the other Boards 
and Committees, resulting in harmony that has given the Town greater benefits. 

To the Boards and Committees, and to the many volunteer workers, on behalf of the 
Board of Selectmen may I close by saying many thanks for your help and faith in 
good government. We will continue to strive to make the coming year a better year. 

Respectfully submitted, 

James F. Banda, Chairman 
George W. Boylen, Jr.

MASSACHUSETTS 01887 



OFFICE OF THE 
TOWN MANAGER 



AREA CODE 617 
65S-33II 



To the Honorable Board of Selectmen and Citizens of Wilmington: 

I am a concerned citizen, to say the least, about the continuing and increasing 
trend of the Great and General Court to accept and pass legislation that is 
rapidly eroding the tax base of Wilmington and other Massachusetts communities. 
As an example, the collective bargaining process (mandated by State Law) becomes 
a mockery, when all pay and fringe benefits not obtained at the bargaining table 
are legislated into existence by the next layer of government. 

As another illustration, the income from State receipts dropped almost $100,000 
in 1969 as compared to 1968. The expense side of the ledger, that is to say 
money paid to the other governmental units by Wilmington, is even more dis- 
heartening. The MBTA charge alone has increased from $675.00 in 1964-5 to an 
estimated $92,342 for 1970. All is not well in suburban Massachusetts, and in 
1970 the Wilmington taxpayer controls less than twenty-three percent of his tax 
dollar . 

It is clearly the proper time for the Town to define the relationship between 
our ability to pay for community and area services, and the many demands for 
services which are received from the citizen almost daily in the form of tele- 
phone calls, letters and petitions. As I reported in my 1970 Budget Message to 
the Selectmen and Finance Committee, these demands are for more sidewalks, speed 
control, clean water, street improvement, storm water drainage, dog impoundment, 
street lights, snow removal, tax abatements, tree planting, park improvements, 
veterans' assistance, environmental control, recreation facilities, police pro- 
tection, legal and engineering assistance and many other areas in which the Town 
is involved . 

The effective administration of the remaining municipal services (over which the 
townspeople still have control) becomes a major consideration for your elected, 
appointed officials and employees for the current year and for the years ahead. 
The tools which are presently being used, and a proposed new approach to effec- 
tive administration include the following: 



2 



1. The establishment of goals and objectives and the scheduling of these 
goals: The first part is developed by the administration through the 
Planning Board and Town Manager using the comprehensive master plan 
technique, and the second part concerning scheduling is developed in 

a mathematical and computerized frame work to be subsequently approved 
by the Selectmen, Finance Committee and citizens of Wilmington. 

2. The development of department and committee level policies, regulations 
and administrative procedures: This can be accomplished by extensive 
research and study of the same level and other levels of government. 

3. The development of organization methodology which means the division 
of work among the departments and among the people of the departments: 
This aspect can be accomplished by re-orienting to a job-structured 
organization rather than a purely people-structured organization. 

4. The development of work incentives, money and non-money; Few govern- 
mental units like Wilmington compete for qualified officials and 
employees. I firmly believe that we should do this in order to have 
a responsive organization capable of providing first class service. 
This pursuit was indicated by me in 1967 in a Town Hall Newsletter. 

5. The development of communication is the final tool in the new approach 
to an effective administration and relates to all other aspects of 
community goals and objectives. This need and its fulfillment requires 
the Selectmen, Town Manager, and all appointed and elected boards, 
committees, commission and trustees to analyze their short range and 
long range needs to make their administrative unit effective, and 
further to describe in writing how they plan to do it. This new ap- 
proach requires communication. 

I wish to acknowledge that the progress which has been made over the past year is 
due to the leadership provided by the Board of Selectmen and the cooperation of 
all Town employees. 

The Town of Wilmington will benefit most of all in the future by your presence 
at Town Meeting. Please plan to attend. 



Respectfully submitted.

register. 

New residents are requested to notify the Board of Registrars of the date which they take residence in the to 
Any change of address within the town during the year should be brought to the attention of the Board so that

Memorial Library 



With a great deal of civic pride the doors of the new Wilmington Memorial Library opened in May, 1959, marking 
an important phase of our heritage and reflecting a solid foundation of planning and accomplishment, for our 
library is not only a continuing educational institution but a center of community cultural growth. 

The move from the small library was accomplished with the enthusiastic and able assistance of the Wilmington 
Girl Scouts and the Explorer's Group of Boy Scouts. An Open House was held on May 23rd with town officials, the 
public, and librarians from surrounding towns in attendance; formal dedication ceremonies were held on Memorial 
Day. 

The year 1969 saw several changes on the Board of Trustees. The townspeople and the library board not only 
wish to pay tribute to Mr. Cornelius Joyce who resigned as Trustee, but to Mrs. Larz Neilson, who during her 
fifteen years as Trustee, brought initiative, imagination and energy to the Board. We are also greatly in- 
' deb ted to Mr. Carlo Gubellini who resigned, having served as Chairman of the Board during the years of planning 
1 and construction of the new facility a-nd gave unstintingly of himself and his time throughout this period of 
great work and responsibility. 

The Board wishes to welcome Mrs. John Callan and Mr. Roland Wood who were appointed by the Town Manager to fill 
two of these vacancies. 

Mr. James L. Connors, who had been Head Librarian for over two years, resigned in November. His resignation 
was regretfully accepted by the Trustees, for he will be long-remembered for his ready wit, warmth and friend- 
liness to every library patron, young and old alike. We are grateful for his efforts in the bringing together 
of ideas and people which is one of the fundamentals of library service. 

Former Head Librarian, Mrs. Clara Chipman, has been appointed Acting Librarian while the Board is engaged in 
seeking a Librarian and completing the furnishing of the new facility. 

The story hour for pre-school children continues to be a popular service, ably and faithfully carried on by 
Mrs. Bruce MacDonald, Mrs. William McGinley, and Mrs. Edmund Passmore. We regretfully accepted the resignation 
of Mrs. Theodore McKie and Mrs. Sullivan as readers and are most grateful for the time and talent given by them.

Book circulation continued its rapid growth and represents an increase of 5,259 over that of 1958. Circulation 
of periodicals has more than doubled during the year; these increases are due in part to the placing of a world 
of books, in a modern setting, at the fingertips of the townspeople, by the investment in a new library. 

» 

During the coming year the Trustees hope to formulate plans and programs for the development of increased li- 
brary services aimed at meeting the needs of the community.

Planning Board 



In accordance with Chapter 3, Section 2 of the Town of Wilmington By-Laws, the Planning Board respectfully 
submits its annual report for the year 1969. 

Each year there is an increase in the activity of the Planning Board, and the year 1969 was busier than any 
of the preceding years, both in the field of planning as well as in sub-division work. The Board has been 
meeting every Tuesday evening > the first and third Tuesdays of the month for Planning and the second and fourj 
for sub-division work. 

The Board was fortunate when Mr. Morton L. Grant was appointed early in the year to assume some of its in- 
creased responsibilities although it regretfully accepted the resignation of Mr. Walter L. Hale, Jr. immedi- 
ately following the Annual Town Meeting in March. 

PLANNING 

Planning work continued on the "701" Master Plan studies under the most able guidance of our consultant, ProfI 
Charles W. Eliot. It became obvious toward the end of the year that the completion date of March 31, 1970 
would be impossible to meet and an extension of three months has been requested of both the State and Federal! 
agencies participating in the project. 

A "Master Plan" or Comprehensive General Plan is, in one sense, a picture of how the Town might look 
twenty or twenty-five years hence. For Wilmington, it is a huge picture, covering 17.08 square miles or 
10,957 acres; and with an even larger background reflecting the influence of Metropolitan Boston and the 
Ipswich and Merrimack River Valleys. The colors in the picture represent the shapes and uses of land in woods 
pastures, and swamps, and for different purposes of residence, business, industry, agriculture, recreation, 
conservation, etc. With the passage of time and inevitable change, all of these colors or land uses change. 
The design or structure in this picture reflects the economic functioning of the community and the forces of . 
transportation and communication which play upon it. 

Every "Master Plan" or Comprehensive General Plan has at least three purposes: 

1. To state or establish Goals or Objectives; ' 

2. To picture the future of the community in maps, diagrams and words as it might desirably appear in 
fifteen or twenty years; and 

3. To propose actions to carry out the Plan. 

GOALS 

The proposals for "Wilmington Future" in the General Plan are directed towards: 

A. Protection of valued existing characteristics of the Town, and of environmental and property values 
against destruction, pollution, or avoidable loss. 

B. Effective use and maintenance of previous investments in streets and highways, schools and recreatiois 
facilities, public buildings and lands, and public services. 

C. Development of Residential, Commercial and Industrial Uses in Neighborhood Patterns, shaped by open 
spaces, and provided with services and amenities for the welfare of all the people.

D. Provision of essential and desired facilities and services, - ranging from streets for access and to 
alleviate traffic congestion, through schools and recreation, police and fire protection, water sup- 
ply, solid waste disposal, and sewerage to Town offices and service buildings. 

E. Retention of opportunities for our successors to adjust to new and presently unforeseen needs and to 
"inevitable change." 

Orderly growth requires advance planning for land use, traffic circulation and access, community fac-i-lities 
and the amenities. The Comprehensive General Plan presented in these pages is a further step in the continu- 
ing process of planning for those purposes. 

Attention was also given to pressing problems which could not wait for the completion of the Planning Program. 
Among these "special" situations which required time consuming and detailed consideration were: 

1) The collapse of the Shawsheen Avenue Bridge and the plans for a substitute location at Richmond St. 

2) Proposals for a "Middle Belt", with "corridor" location and design studies by Highway Consultants to 
the Mass. Department of Public Works 

3) Proposal by the M.A.P.C., in its Open Space Plan, for a major "Reservation" in southwest Wilmington 
and Burlington with two or more "retention-recreation" reservoirs 

4) The status and disposition of "Town-Owned" and other Tax Delinquent Properties in Wilmington 

5) Proposals for Conservancy Zoning to protect the wetlands of the Town against pollution, and the resi- 
dents against flooding and the hazards of high water. 

Special reports and recommendations on each of these subjects were prepared and studied by the Planning Board. 

During 1969, the work on Surveys and Data Collection, has, of course, been continued, intensified and the draf 
chapter reports put in semi-final form. Citizen participation by groups and individuals has greatly aided the 
project, and every request by the Board or its Consultant for information, assistance or conference with other 
Town officials and agencies has been met with cooperation. Projects aided in these ways included: 

1) For the Natural Features Inventory , the Conservation Commission organized a series of Committees with 
specially qualified citizens who identified, prepared lists and mapped the location of the "natural 
science and natural beauty" features of the Town. The Inventory included Botanic, Geologic, Orni- 
thologic, and Natural Science Features, which in the opinion of the particular committee should be 
protected or enhanced. The participation of informed citizens in this endeavor has been especially 
valuable . 

2) For the Chapter on Settlement and History, Captain Larz Neilson provided a wealth of "erials and 
editorial review. 

3) Ques tionnaire . Because the Planning Board was anxious to have the Comprehensive General Plan reflect 
the views and desires of their fellow townspeople, a Planning Questionnaire was initiated with the 
help of the Consultant, and mailed to everyone receiving water service in the Town on January 3, 
1969. Some 1040 householders (about a quarter of those questioned) filled out and returned the 
questionnaires, - a most encouraging indication of the eager interest and concern of the townspeople 
in the future of the Town. 

Coding and tabulation of the returns have provided data on land use and residences, on commuting and 
shopping travel, lot sizes, industrial development, conservation policies, etc.; and stimulated com- 
ments and suggestions on what is "Right about Wilmington" or bad about existing conditions, and what 
improvements or changed policies should be considered in the "Master Plan." 

4) Employees' Residences and Places of Work . Records were made available by AVCO, and, through the co- 
operation of the Wilmington Chamber of Commerce, by five other major employers in the Town, from 
which "origin and destination" traffic lines have been der v^ed. This data, combined with figures on 
commuting and shopping habits of Wilmington residents from the Questionnaire has helped to locate 
points of traffic congestion requiring attention. 



19 



The Consultant, his Associates, and Assistants have continued their work on Inventory Data for Part I of the 
Report and as special information was needed in connection with the preparation of plans and proposals on Open 
Space, Streets and Highways, Schools, etc. These materials have included information on land uses, roads and 
traffic, population trends and economic data, "capacity" for growth under existing zoning, and planning acti-i 
vities in neighboring towns. ^ 

The " Operational Soil Survey " for Wilmington has been prepared by the U.S. Soil Conservation Service under a 
separate contract with the Town. All of the field work was completed by August 1, 1958, and maps and reports 
on soils and "soil association" in different parts of the Town were delivered on May 20, 1969. The report 
records the soils and reviews the suitability of soils for a variety of uses, and the severity of limitations 
on those uses due to soil conditions. 

PRELIMINARY PLANS AND PROGRESS REPORT 

On February 4, 1969, Preliminary Plans and a Progress Report on all of the work under the "701" Planning Pro- 
ject to that date were presented to a meeting of Town Officers, citizens and officials of the Mass. Department 
of Community Affairs at Avco Corporation complex. Maps were exhibited and explained by the consultant and his 
associates. Well over 100 persons attended the meeting and participated in the general discussion of the pos- 
sible lines of action and policy outlined by the Chairman of the Planning Board and the Planning Consultant. 
With the helpful suggestions and criticisms obtained from that meeting, work then proceeded on the revision 
and amplification of these preliminary studies. 

DEVELOPMENT OF PLANS 

Proposals for future land use, open space, commercial and industrial development; for streets and highways; 
schools and public facilities, and for utilities have been developed by the Consultant in drafts for discussio 
with the Planning Board and with Town Officers and others particularly concerned. 

For this work, the Planning Board and the Consultant have kept in close touch with the Town Manager and have 
met with the Selectmen, Finance Committee, Conservation Commission, Permanent Building Committee, and other 
Town Officials to review with them problems and procedures, sources of data, and possible policies and program; 
There have also been meetings with the Planning Boards from adjoining towns, with the Ipswich River Watershed J 
Commission and with the Towns in the corridor proposed for the Middle Belt. Since both the Chairman of the ■ 
Planning Board and the Consultant are members of the Executive Committee of the M.A.P.C. the relationship ■ 
between regional and local planning proposals has received constant attention. The Planning Consultant has I 
conferred with State Officials at the Department of Public Works, Department of Commerce and Development, I 
Department of Community Affairs and Department of Natural Resources for data and information on projects and M 
proposals affecting Wilmington. ^ 

ACTIONS TAKEN DURING PLANNING PERIOD I 

of course, continued, and the ■ 
and proposals were under J 

a. Zoning . At the 1969 Town Meeting, the Town failed to register the necessary two- thirds vote to amend' 
the Zoning By-Law to include a "Conservancy District", as proposed by the Planning Board. This proposal was 
intended to protect the wetlands of the Town against destruction by filling or building and against pollution 
of water supply sources. On the other hand, the Town Meeting followed the recommendations of the Planning 
Board - approving or rejecting other articles relating to Zoning, including approval of a petition to the 
General Court for exemption from the 50 foot lot provisions of the Zoning Enabling Act, repeal of the "Stadium' 
provisions, and numerous other changes. The cooperation of the voters on the 50 foot lot item is definitely a 
step forward for Wilmington. 

b. Land Acquisition and Assignment of "Town-Owned" lands to Town Agencies for public purposes has con- 
tinued, with particular attention to the furtherance of the so-called "Hathaway Acres" project between 
Charlotte Drive and Martins Brook, and the acquisition of properties on the shores of Silver Lake. A vote 
of the Town Meeting to acquire the Grange Property was declared "defective", but corrective action is being 
taken at the 1970 Town Meeting. 

The Planning Board, its Consultant, the Town Manager and Town Treasurer have devoted a great deal of study to 
the status and appropriate disposition of the "Town-Owned" and other Tax Title properties in the Town. The 
recommendations for open space, well-fields. School sites and other public lands in the General Plan reflect 
those studies in specific proposals for assignment of parcels to particular Town agencies. 



While the "General Plan" was being prepared, actions affecting the work have. 
Planning Consultant has participated in many of the conferences when projects 
discussion. 



20 



c. Streets and Highways : The 1969 Town Meeting "accepted the layouts" for a number of streets and street 
widenings which are parts of the Major Street Plan. Most importantly, the Town approved action to relocate 
the Shawsheen Avenue Bridge. This project is close to that recommended in the 1957 General Plan and a first 
step in provision of "A New Route 129" which has been the subject of numerous meetings with the Town Manager, 
Selectmen, and Representative Cain. Studies by the Planning Consultant and the Town Engineer for a by-pass 
of Main Street - incorporating the "Olson Street Project" have been presented to the Mass. Department of 
Public Works. 

Under our form of government and with our reliance on initiative by private enterprise, actions to carry 
out plans will depend on a multitude of decisions by many people. It is hoped that the "picture" of how 
Wilmington might look fifteen or twenty years hence may suggest to owners or developers of properties, some 
of the possibilities which would benefit both themselves and the whole community. Certainly one of the pur- 
poses in preparing a Comprehensive Plan is to encourage, induce, and guide private actions in the public 
interest. 

At the same time, it is necessary to restrain those who might act or propose actions contrary to the plan or 
which would prevent others or the Town itself from carrying out particular projects which are important ele- 
ments of the plan. Furthermore, the Town should carefully review the actions by private developers to prevent 
undue burdens on the general public, - both immediately or at a future date. 

Governments, at all levels from Town and County or Regional through State and Federal, - can and should take 
many actions to bring the picture nearer reality and to protect the future against unwise commitments in the 
present. 

It is well known, for instance, that the opening of a new road, highway improvements, or the availability of 
water, sewers and utilities, or the construction of a new school are positive influences in the manner and 
direction of private investment. By the provision and timing of "public improvements" or by the deliberate 
withholding of services, government can and does effect the where and when of growth and development. 

SUB-DIVISION REGULATIONS 

During the year the Board received 70 applications for the sub-division of land. Of these, six represented 
major developments which required several meetings with the developers and involved many hours of the Board's 
time. In addition to this, the Board met with several developers to discuss possible methods of employing 
various zoning devices not presently included in the Zoning By-Law. 

SMALL LOTS 

This was the year for Victory.' Our long battle against the development of under-size lots was won.' Rep. Fred 
Cain entered a bill to exempt the Town from the provisions of the General Laws which allow building on lots 
containing 5,000 square feet and having 50 feet of frontage. In July the bill became a law, thus making 
Wilmington exempt from this provision which had raised havoc with our zoning, changing population and density 
projections . 

MASS. FEDERATION OF PLANNING BOARDS - REGION 5A 

At the annual meeting of Region 5A, Mr. Gillis was voted Director and Mrs. McKie, Secretary of this organi- 
zation which consists of twenty-three cities and towns in the northeast sector of the State. 

The next decade will produce a more regional approach to planning, particularly for roads, water supplies, 
low-cost housing, housing for the elderly, area pollution and solid waste disposal. 

During 1969 many visits were made to other planning boards in an effort to coordinate planning programs. 
These visits have brought attention to the individuality of the "typical New England Towns", especially where 
there has been much care and consideration given to preserve the aura of this unique picture. Each of us in 
Wilmington should strive to retain this characteristic environment which is fast disappearing before the bull- 
dozer or the financial speculator. 

METROPOLITAN AREA PLANNING COUNCIL 

At the annual meeting of the MAPC in May, Mrs. McKie was elected to the Executive Committee of the Council 
and later appointed to the Budget and Program Committees. 

This added responsibility has meant attendance at more meetings in order to fulfill the obligations accepted 
with these new commitments. Full Council meetings were attended and the required volumes containing planning 
proposals to be discussed at these meetings were read. 



21 



Mrs. Julia O'Brien, MAPC planner who prepared the Open Space Report of that organization, met with the Board i 
of Selectmen, the Town Manager and Mrs. McKie to confer with the Selectmen regarding the Council's proposal 
for two artificial lakes with surrounding parkland, comparing it with the Blue Hills Reservation. 

It is felt that involvement of its representative with the various activities of the Council is definitely 
advantageous to the Town since it helps to keep abreast of current regional approaches of planning. 

SUB-REGIONAL INTER-TOWN LIAISON COMMITTEE 

The Board has joined eight other communities who are interested in opposing the Middle Circumferential Belt 
proposed by the DPW during the past year. An informal organization has been formed, resulting in the above 
name and commonly referred to as SILC. Two representatives from each town comprise the committee; one appoint 
by the Selectmen (Mr. Gordon Haywood) and one by the Planning Board of each particular town (Mr. Gillis, Mrs. : 
McKie, alternate) . 

One meeting a month, each in a different town, has been agreed upon. Since the organization is still too 
young to expect any results, no evaluation of its efforts can be made at this time but combined thoughts and 
energy usually produce more substantial effect. 

STATE DEPARTMENTS 



In the course of its work, the Planning Board has contacted some departments of the State Government. Some of 
these represented trips into Boston for meetings with the Department of Community Affairs, Department of Publi 
Works, Department of Natural Resources and the Attorney General's Office. 

OTHER TOWNS 

On several occasions the Board has met with Planning Boards from the towns of Andover, Burlington, No. Readingiij 
Reading, Tewksbury and Woburn in an attempt to coordinate the planning of the towns. 

CHAMBER OF COMMERCE 

During the early part of the year, the Board met with representatives of the Chamber of Commerce on several 
occasions to explain the Proposed Conservancy District article on the warrant of the annual Town Meeting. 



Later in the year, the Board requested the Chamber to contact the major industries for a list from each con- 
taining the number of employees and their places of residence. The Board is grateful for their cooperation 
in this matter since the information gathered is an important part of our Master Plan. 

HATCH ACT 

In its advisory capacity, the Planning Board has appeared at each Hatch Act hearing held by the Board of 
Selectmen to report its recommendations based upon the information contained in various planning reports. 

TOWN ENGINEER 

The Town Engineer, Mr. Harding, has attended Planning Board meetings to discuss parking plans, drainage prob- 
lems, sub-division plans and the problem of the location of the Wilmington-Burlington town line. His invalu- 
able assistance has been most helpful as has been his cooperative efforts in aiding the Board in its planning 
endeavors . 



BOARD OF APPEALS HEARINGS 

This past year has been one of increased cooperation and understanding with the Board of Appeals. It is felt 
that generally the information and statements offered by the Board have been seriously considered in the 
decision of each case. 

Statements are not made unless the application for appeal falls within those areas which, according to the 
Zoning By-Law, require the opinion of the Board. Unfortunately, these recommendations tend to be of the neg- 
ative variety. It should be noted that the relationship of the Planning Board to the Board of Appeals is in 
that of an advisory capacity. 

OTHER BOARDS, COMMITTEES AND COMMISSIONS 

Since the Master Plan represents a picture of the total community, it follows quite naturally that the Board 
should contact many of the other boards, committees and commissions within the Town. Meetings have been held 
with the following: 



Town Manager and his Administrative Assistant 
Board of Selectmen 
Town Counsel 



Moderator 

Board of Appeals 

Principal Assessor 



22 



OTHER BOARDS, COMMITTEES AND COMMISSIONS (continued) 



Building Inspector 

Conservation Conmission 

Finance Committee 

Board of Health and its Director 

Housing Authority 

Permanent Building Committee 

Recreation Commission 



School Committee 
School Superintendent 
Skating Rink Study Committee 
Town Clerk 

Redevelopment Authority 
Water & Sewer Commissioners 



The Board wishes to express its gratitude for the cooperation which these people have displayed. 

Special acknowledgement should be given to Mr. Morris, our Town Manager, for the interest he has demonstrated 
in our various responsibilities; to Mr. Eliot, our Planning Consultant, for the extra trips to Wilmington and 
the countless extra hours he has contributed; and all those private citizens who have supported the Board on 
numerous occasions; to the Wilmington League of Women Voters who so ably assisted at our Planning Seminars; 
land last, but not least, Mrs. Evelyn Burke, our Clerk, who has contributed immeasurably to the efficiency of 
the Board. 

CITIZENS PLANNING ADVISORY COMMITTEE 

At the present time, the Board is attempting to form an advisory committee composed of interested citizens 
who are willing to assist in the planning program. Members would be asked to meet at mutually agreed-upon 
times to review and discuss planning proposals contained in the Master Plan. This effort should result in 
the involvement of the residents of the Town and the incorporation of their views into the planning for the 
future of Wilmington. It is the sincere desire of the Board that many residents will fill in and return the 
t form below.

Some of the Highlights of 1969 Worthy of Note : 



1. During the year we have sent three officers to the Police Academy at Lowell State College; Bob LaRivee in 
April and Mickey McKenna and Joe Morgan in October. (Congrats I I I ) 

2. We had two new men appointed to the Department and one appointed to replace an officer who resigned. Bill 
Gable was appointed in June and will get into the Academy this April. (Welcome to the TEAM, Bill I) 

3. It was with a deep sense of regret that I had to see Vern Randell resign on May 8th. Vern was a good copi 
(And it is too bad that "Good Cops" can't get "Good Pay".) 

4. Detective Harvey attended the F.B.I, Firearms Instructor School at Camp Curtis Guild in Wakefield in Octob«i 

5. Two new Sergeants were made this year. Sergeant Palmer and Sergeant Peterson. (Congrats I 1 I ) 

6. Lieutenant Imbimbo attended the Command Training Institute at Babson Institute of Business Administration 
at Wellesley for a month; graduating on April 18th with a very high mark in all subjects. (Nice work, JohnI) 

7. May 22nd the Town Hall was "Broken into and Safes Broken Open". You can be sure we solved this onel (To 
save face at least) (The results of this investigation makes good reading. .. .but I can't make it public in- 
formation) . 

8. Charles L. Ellsworth, a member of the Wilmington Police Department for 15 years, received his Associate 
of Science Degree in Law Enforcement from Northeastern University. 

9. Last to be mentioned, .. .but my proudest accomplishment of the year.... was the presentation of nice gold 
badges to Wilmington's Top Clergymen making them "Honorary Chaplains". The recipients: 1. Father Croke, 

St. Thomas Church; 2. The Reverend Tadgell, Congregational Church; 3. The Reverend Miller, Methodist Church; 
4. The Reverend Smith, Baptist Church; 5. Father Leahy, St. Dorothy's Church. Nice to have you with us .' I I 

Before I conclude this report, I would like to take this opportunity to remind all residents of the Town, 
especially those who have just moved into Wilmington, that our phone number is 658-3331 and 658-3332; and that 
we have a Woburn number into this department 935-5966. 

And once again let me point out to you that WE HAVE CRUISERS OUT ON THE ROAD EVERY MINUTE OF THE DAY AND 

THAT THESE CARS ARE EVERYWHERE 1 

DON'T SELL US SHORT BY YOU MAKING THE DECISION "I DIDN'T CALL BECAUSE I FIGURED THAT BY THE TIME THE POLICE 
GOT HERE IT WOULD BE TOO LATE". APPRECIATE THAT AT THAT VERY MOMENT A CRUISER MIGHT JUST BE IN YOUR AREA! 
OR JUST DOWN THE STREET FROM YOU. 

So, please put that call in! DIAL 658-3331 

And now comes the time for me to express my most sincere thanks to all those who help me in any way to "put 
the show on the road". 

All the Town Departments who do so much for us during the year . . . . to all members of the Police Department,.... 
the Regulars, .... the Specials the Traffic Supervisors the K-9 Of fleers the Clerk of the Department;^ 
and all others who make this Department a department to be proud of; to the Selectmen and the Town Manager for 
their spirit of cooperation-. .. .and to the residents who in many ways help us throughout the year; To each of 
you. My Most Sincere Thanks! I I And I trust I can count on your continued cooperation so that 1970 will be a 
good year for the Wilmington Police Department.

Fire Department 



The manual force consists of the Chief, three Lieutenants, and twenty-two Privates. There is a call force of 
thirteen members. The department responded to a total of one thousand one hundred and one (1101) calls. 

Ambulance Calls 439 Service Calls 150 

Auto and Trucks 64 False Alarms 58 

Buildings 51 Out of Town 11 

Brush and Grass 328 

Total value of property endangered was $251,850.00 
Total property loss was $ 59,933.48 

Permits issued for blasting 21 
Permits issued for storage of oil 78 
Permits issued for storage of propane gas 10 

Inspections were made of all schools, public buildings and all inflammables storage as required by law. 

The Fire Prevention Bureau under the direction of Lieutenant Gushing made inspections of all business estab- 
lishments in town. The Junior Fire Marshall Plan was conducted during the year in all 5th grades in the 
school system. 

The Fire Alarm Division under the direction of Private Blaisdell made all necessary repairs to the fire alarm 
system, also made one hundred twenty-six change-overs for the Light and Telephone Companies, strung approxi- 
mately four miles of wire. The following four new boxes were tied into the system: Library, Volkswagen, West 
School and the new school on Shawsheen Avenue. 



Recreation Commission 



In compliance with the many requests by the residents of Wilmington, we have been able to realize additional 
programs such as; the organization of a girls' basketball league, a girls' Softball league, a boys' Softball 
league, and a youth flag football league. 

Other new programs that we have assisted include girls' figure skating, youth hockey league, pony league, 
baseball, and Pop Warner football. 

The newly installed lights at the Town Park made it possible for many of these programs to expand as well as 
being available to the Crusaders Drum and Bugle Corp., and a revitalized adult Softball league. 

We would like to thank the more than 100 volunteer workers who have served as instructors, advisors, and of- 
ficials thereby making these programs possible. 

Because of the many demands of program expansion and planning for new areas of development, it is imperative 
that a full time director be assigned as soon as possible.

The number of building permits issued in 1969 is considerably less than in 1968. There are two reasons to 
account for this: (1) The high interest rate on mortgage money; (2) No new major subdivisions were started in 
1969. 



Alterations and repairs remain high. Many homeowners are remodeling and adding to existing homes instead of 
buying new houses . 

Violations of the Zoning By-Law are being abated as quickly as possible. Court action has been taken in some 
of the more difficult cases. 

My thanks to the Boards, Commissions and departments who have assisted me throughout 1969.

Town Engineer 



The requests for engineering services continued to increase during the year, as they have since 1955 when the 
first Town Engineer was appointed. In the past fourteen years almost everything about Wilmington has doubled 
including population, school enrollment and personnel required to operate most all other town departments except 
the engineering department. The result of an amendment to the budget of the engineering department made from 
the floor of the annual Town Meeting to reduce the appropriation for personal services caused the reduction of 
one position to that of a tvro man department, the same as was authorized by the 1955 Town Meeting. As a result 
of the reduction of authorized personnel the backlog of requests for engineering services was increased. 

Field surveys, calculations, plans and cost estimates were prepared for many projects, both approved and pro- 
posed including: layout of Ferguson Road, Elwood Road, Jere Road, Sudbury Avenue, Rhodes Street, Bond Street 
and Floradale Avenue for construction under the Betterment Act; layout of Adams Street, Clark Street and West 
Street for proposed alterations to an existing location, setting stone bounds and for proposed roadway and 
drainage reconstruction and sidewalk construction; layout of Middlesex Avenue, Shawsheen Avenue and Ballard- 
vale Street for drainage and roadway reconstruction; layout of Andover Street for proposed alterations and 
Chapter 90 construction; and numerous surveys to help correct drainage problems. 

The Engineering Department assisted the Middlesex County Engineering Department personnel performing field 
surveys of the Lowell Street-Woburn Street intersection, the Wilmington-Burlington Town Line and the resurvey 
of Middlesex Avenue; the Commonwealth of Massachusetts Department of Public Works Engineering personnel with 
survey data of the Main Street, Brand Avenue, Bridge Lane, Shawsheen Avenue area for the proposed new Route 
129 bridge over the B & M Railroad; layout for the reconstruction of the Nichols Street Bridge, proposed 
alterations to Lowell Street and Woburn Street and with preliminary proposals for the Main Street By-pass. 

The Engineering Department assisted the Board of Assessors with several street renumbering projects, prepar- 
ation of engineering data for assessing purposes and the annual revisions to the property maps. Also engine- 
ering services were provided to the Highway Department, Conservation Commission, Building Inspector, Board 
of Health and Water Department as requested. 

The Town Engineer met with the Planning Board at all of its regular and special meetings as an engineering 
advisor and acts as its agent in the inspection of construction of streets, utilities and storm drainage in 
all approved subdivisions. During the year, construction continued on Allen Park, Barrows Park, Benson Park, 
Hathaway Acres, Route 93 Northern Industrial Park, Wildwood Estates and Wilmington Industrial Park and work 
was started on Jackson Park. Progress was made in an attempt to clean up some old incomplete subdivisions 
and this will be continued next year. 

Many study plans were prepared from property maps and aerial photo maps for proposed highway relocations, 
proposed school sites and conservation areas, proposed zoning changes and many other proposed project areas.

Highway Department 



I hereby submit my Annual Report of the activities of the Wilmington Highway Department for the year 1969. 

All the regular highway maintenance work was carried out during the year such as sweeping streets, patching 
streets, erection of street signs, cleaning catch basins, scraping back roads, etc.. Our regular routine 
work has steadily increased due to the many new homes and developments being built throughout the town. 
Many of the requests could be dealt with when received, but the majority were drainage problems and due to 
lack of funds, had to remain on our list of drainage problems. Many of these drainage problems have been 
temporarily alleviated manually, but each time it rains or we have a snow storm, the situation becomes the 
same . 

Sidewalk Program : Due to the heavy work load of the Engineering Department, the engineering on the sidewalks 
was not completed until November 10th of 1969, so consequently we were not able to construct any sidewalks 
during 1969. 

Chapter 81 Maintenance : About 12 miles of streets were resurfaced all or in part. Streets included were: 
Dell Drive, Patricia Circle, Chestnut Street, Glen Road, Woburn Street, High Street Park Street, Pershing 
Street, Wilson Street, Central Street, Parker Street, Cross Street, Butters Row, Beech Street, Forest Street, 
Aldrich Road, Hopkins Street, Dorchester Street, Burt Road, and Brand Avenue. 

Chapter 90 Maintenance : $6,000 was spent for hot top on Shawsheen Avenue, from the cranberry bog to Manning 
Street, and from Nichols Street to Grace Drive. 

Drainage : Extended culvert on Fairview Avenue. Replaced culvert on Cedar Crest Road. Replaced culvert on 
Shady Lane Drive. Replaced culvert on West Street. New drainage system installed on Middlesex Avenue, from 
Adams to Clark Street. New drainage system installed on Middlesex Avenue near Salem Street. 

Clean-up, Pickup Campaign : We received over 700 calls for pickup. The loader had to be used for many of 
the calls as they were either too heavy or too large for the men to pick up and load on the trucks. 

Reconstructed Ballardvale Street for a distance of 4,400 feet, through a gift of $25,000 from Gillette Co. 

Cut trees on West Street between Lowell Street and Suncrest Avenue. 

Chapter 616 Bond : Reconstructed Shawsheen Avenue from Hopkins Street to Nichols Street, a distance of about 
1,000 feet. 

Work Performed for Other Departments : Engineering Department: Installed street bounds. 
Cemetery Department: Hauled loam and fill for the addition of the Cemetery. 
Tree Department: Loader and truck helped Tree Department remove some big trees. 

Snow and ice removal still remains a major and very expensive problem. Last winter was one of the roughest, 
severest and expensive winters on record in the Town. More money than ever before was spent for salt and 
sand. Not only was the snow removal a large problem in itself, the melting caused many major water problems 
on Clark Street, Federal Street, Chestnut Street, with Wildwood Street having to be closed off to the public. 
Due to the threat of heavy flooding, the Highway Department bought and kept on hand a supply of sand bags to 
be used for any such emergencies. 

Equipment : My mechanic, foreman and I have checked over the equipment and sincerely conclude we must trade 
the sweeper, 2 pick-up trucks, the catch basin truck and one 3 1/2 ton dump truck. 



30 



The Highway Department now has a full time welder who does all the necessary welding for all town departments. 
This has proven to be a great saving to the department in both time and money. 

Jesse Griffin, after 20 years service as head mechanic for the Highway Department, retired in October, 1969. 
I Ralph Grassia the assistant mechanic was appointed to fill this position. 

In concluding this report, I would like to thank all Town departments for the cooperation extended this depart- 
ment in 1969, especially their cooperation during the heavy snow storms this past winter. To the Town Manager 
and the Board of Selectmen for their support throughout the year. To the men of the Highway Department for 
their every effort to the accomplishments of the Highway Department in 1969, my sincere thanks and appreciation. 



Public Buildings Dept. 



I respectfully submit my sixth annual report on behalf of the Public Buildings Department. 

The department assumed the maintenance of the new Memorial Library on May 10, 1969. One new custodian was 
assigned to the building. Planting of shrubs was done by the grounds section, and in the Spring trees will 
be added to the planting. 

The new Shawsheen School is well under construction and should be fully completed by the end of April 1970. 
This building will require three new custodians to m.aintain it. Also a new groundskeeper will be needed. 
Since the last man was added, the department has an additional sixty acres to maintain. 

Work on the Highway addition was delayed by excessive repairs and vandalism during the year. All block work 
and steel work was completed, but the snow and ice delayed the roofing of the building. As soon as a warm spell 
occurs, the roof will be finished. 

Throughout the year the department has carried on the continuous work of cleaning, painting and repairing the 
plant facilities of the various Town-owned buildings. All boilers and burners were overhauled and inspected 
as per regulations. 

The department is now remodeling the old Library for offices for the Board of Health and Building Inspector 
due to the high price submitted by outside contractors. Work on this will be completed in February 1970. 

A fire alarm system was installed in the old West School for the protection of the children and building. 
Equipment was bought to install a fire alarm system in the Highway Building to protect the heavy investment 
in equipment and buildings. 

In conclusion, on behalf of the department, I would like to thank the various employees and Town Officials 
for the cooperation extended in the year 1969 •

There were no changes in personnel during 1969. Mr. James Durkee chaired the Board for the third consecutive 
year . 

During 1969, environmental health became the focal point of attention throughout the country, with particular 
emphasis on air and water pollution. The Wilmington Board of Health devoted a great deal of time to these 
problems. They met with Town and State Officials, together with citizen groups, and representatives of local 
industries, in an attempt to effect corrective action. 

A Glaucoma Eye Screening Clinic and a Diabetes Detection Clinic was held in Wilmington for the first time in 
1969 for adults. The attendance was overwhelming. 

The Board promulgated new regulations dealing with sewage disposal. 

The Board was forced to disassemble its laboratory due to a space need by the landlord. It is hoped that the 
laboratory will be relocated in the near future. 

The mumps vaccine, which was licensed in 1968, was made available to the entire school population during the 
year . 

A. COMMUNICABLE DISEASE CONTROL 

1 . Monthly Immunization Clinic 

The afternoon session continued to be poorly attended, and so will probably be discontinued in 1970.

The Board denied approval of twenty- two of these lots. Eleven were approved for the subsurface dis- 
posal of sewage. 



9 . Biologic Stations 

The Board of Health maintains three biologic sub-stations for the convenience of the local physicians. 
These are the Wilmington Plaza Drug Store, the North Wilmington Pharmacy, and the Silver Lake Pharmacy. 

Vaccines are supplied to these stations for distribution to the physicians by the Board of Health. 
These are made available free of charge through the State Department of Public Health. 

10 . Legal Matters 

Mr. Simon Cutter continued on during the year as the Board's legal consultant. Mr. Cutter represented 
the Board in the District Court involving all complaints initiated by the Board. 

Alan Altman, Town Counsel, successfully represented the Board in a suit against them dealing with 
lots of land on Dell Drive. Mr. Altman also advises the Board on those matters where rulings of Town 
Counsel are required. He represents the Board in Superior Court and prepares contracts. 

11. Complaints 

The Board received a total of five hundred and sixty-seven (567) complaints during the year. These 
involve: garbage, rubbish, sewage disposal, odor, rodent, housing, insect, and other nuisance complaints 



34 



D. ENVIRONMENTAL HEALTH (continued) 



The Board does not act on anonymous complaints. It is their policy, however, to investigate viola- 
tions of regulations as expeditiously as possible and to extend every opportunity for compliance. 
Uncooperative violators are referred for legal action. 

12 . Water Supply 

A total of nine (9) water samples were analyzed upon request. The Board of Health's laboratory was 
disassembled in May and it then became necessary to refer requests for analysis to private labor- 
atories . 

13 . Recreation Area Sanitation 

In May 1969, the State Department of Public Health adopted minimum standards for bathing beaches. 
This provides for the licensing of accredited bathing beaches by the local Boards of Health. During 
the year, twelve bathing beach samples were submitted for analysis. All complied with standards. 

Recreation Areas Licensed 2

Conservation Commission 



During the sixth year of its existence, the Conservation Commission has continued to expand its role in pre- 
serving and improving the natural environment of the Town. Following is a summary of some of the major ac- 
tivities of this commission. 



Public Education: 



1. Mailed approximately A, 000 detailed questionnaires to citizens in Town to guide commission activities 
in continuing conservation programs. An encouraging response was tabulated for statistical analysis on a 
digital computer. 

2. Purchased two dozen books on conservation subjects for the Wilmington Memorial Library. 

3. Continued an Arbor Day program at the Wildwood, Buzzell, and Boutwell Schools consisting of the 
planting of several species of trees with student participation. 

4. Purchased and installed signs marking fishermen's access routes, indicating land managed by the Con- 
servation Commission, and the first sign for the Town Forest and Park. 

5. Sponsored three boys at the Massachusetts Junior Conservation Camp. 

6. Sponsored a series of five lectures which were given at the Woburn Street School by the Audubon 
Society on the ecology of wild life and featured three live animals. 

7. A program of informing " the public about conservation affairs was implemented. 
Environmental Protection : 

1. Supported investigations of Hatch Act Hearings by submitting written reports on findings. 

2. Acquired soil survey aerial photographs and maps from the Soil Conservation Service and are preparing 
overlay maps for correlation with our master set of aerial maps and our assessor's maps. 

3. Reviewed a draft on the Open Space Plan at the request of the Wilmington Planning Board, responding 
with a written evaluation and critique. 

4. Responded to all citizen complaints on possible Hatch Act violations and investigated. 

5. Instituted formal complaints of air pollution to State and Town authorities. 
Land Acquisition and Improvement : 

1. Received reimbursement for lands purchased under application for "Self help" funds in 1968. 

2. Purchased 12 acres of land for a passive recreation area and applied for "Self Help" funds to help 
reduce the net cost to the taxpayer. 

3. Accepted a gift of land located on the Shawsheen River. 

4. Reviewed the availability of tax title lands for possibility of transfer to Conservation Commission. 

Realizing the impact on the taxpayer in its continuing program of land acquisition and improvement, the Com- 
mission will take every advantage of "Self Help" funds available from Federal and State sources. 



36 



Permanent Building Committee 



In accordance with respective votes of Town Meetings, the Permanent Building Committee pursued its functions 
in connection with constructing and equipping a public library and the Shawsheen Elementary School. 

A preliminary land acquisition and site layout were undertaken to determine the feasibility of a High School 
addition and the development of additional athletic and parking facilities for same. 

The Architect and Soil Engineer's combined report was accepted by the committee, and copies were submitted to 
the School Committee with the recommendation that a revised layout of parcels of land under consideration be 
acquired . 

Time did not permit the preparation of documents for the Annual Town Meeting, thus the committee will respect- 
fully request a Special Town Meeting as soon as practical for the purpose of requesting financing for the pro- 
posed projects. 

The Committee wishes to thank all other Town Committees, Departments and personnel for their cooperation. 



By-law Study Committee 



Following a vote at the 1969 Annual Town Meeting, the Town By-Law Study Committee was appointed by the Select 
men for the purpose of conducting a study of "The By-Laws of the Inhabitants of Wilmington". 

The first meeting was held in April with the Board of Selectmen and Town Manager present to provide direction 
and guidance. Tne committee has met regularly since then, on the first and third Thursday of eacli month. 

We proceeded to familiarize ourselves with Wilmington's By-Laws, and compare them with other towns; such as, 
Andover, Reading, Wakefield, Sudbury, Ipswich, Holden, Amherst and Winchester. 

In September, a memo was sent to all Town Officials, Boards, Committees and Departments requesting any sug- 
gestions they might have to update or revise the Town's By-Laws. The replies were duly considered and 
evaluated. 

In November, interviews with individual town officials began, and numerous recommendations were made. 

The committee is continuing this procedure with the expectations of being granted an extension of time by 
the Town Meeting to complete the assigned study.

A few of the cross avenues in the Cemetery were eliminated and made over into lots for burials. These areas 
have given twenty-four lots at an income of about four thousand dollars at the present price. Some of the 
lots have already been sold. 

Part of Section J was finished and seeded. This portion will give the department about eighteen six grave 
lots and seventy-two four grave lots. This area will be sold within a year or so. At the present cost they 
will net the Town about sixteen thousand dollars. 

A thousand yards of loam was brought and hauled in from Sweetheart Plastics. A three and one half ton Ford 
Truck was purchased this year to replace a three quarter ton Chevrolet Truck. A new ten foot reversible plow 
was bought and installed on the new truck. A new soil shredder was purchased. A chain link fence was in- 
stalled on the property line near Section C. It has been faced with a planting of shrubs and evergreens. The 
diamond at the Town Park was graded to a bare surface. Loam and sand was spread and rototilled; then rolled. 
The area was maintained daily thus developing a good sound playing field. A water line was installed at the 
park for drinking and watering the field. The parking area at the park was enlarged. 

A hot top walk was put in at the west end of the Common. The flag pole rope is constantly being cut by 
pranksters. Cars are driven across the grass areas at night. It is impossible to keep the children from 
playing ball on the Common. 

At this time I wish to extend sincere thanks to the various Town Officials and Departments for their assistance 
and cooperation during the year 1969.

Tree Department 



Our regular tree work of cutting, trimming and removing trees was carried on throughout the year. There were 
one hundred Norway maples set out in various sections of the Town, These were planted due to the request of 
the townspeople. Tree feeding on undeveloped trees was maintained to help push their growth. Tree cutting 
was done on West Street to widen and improve the road. Twelve large trees were removed. Also, about one 
hundred trees on Ballardvale Street were removed for the same purpose. Several of our roadside pines and 
maples were removed because they were decayed and could not be saved. All tree removal during the year was 
taken to the Town tree dump to be burned. Starting in April all trees throughout the Town are sprayed for 
control of the insects. We plowed snow for the Highway Department during snow storms. Assisted the Mainten- 
ance and Cemetery Departments when requested. Put the lights on the Christmas tree on the common. 

Elm Leaf Beetle and Dutch Elm Disease ; 

All Elm trees were sprayed with dormant oil in an effort to save the vastly vanishing Elms. Thirty-three 
samples were taken from various trees in the town and sent to Amherst State College to be tested for Dutch 
Elm. Forty-seven dutch and decayed Elms were removed. The Tree Department's stump cutter was used to remove 
seventy-five stumps. 

;;' Moth Department: 
(J 

Spraying was carried on beginning in April to help control the insect pest, such as tent caterpillars, gypsy 
moth, white pine weevil, European pine shoot moth, maple bladder gall, spruce gall Aphids and etc. This year 
we had a lot of trouble with Oak Skeletonizers , which occured a great deal from the oak trees. We have no 
jurisdiction for spraying backyards, but do spray the roadside oak trees. Although these worms are unsightly, 
they are harmless. 

Poison Ivy : 

Weed killer was used to spray areas where poison ivy was found. Also roadside brush and hazardous corner 
areas were sprayed to control brush growth. 

Mosquitoes : 

1969 brought a new mosquito Larvaecide control. All trapped water and bog holes were sprayed with liquid 
Larvaecide. Mosquito Larvaecide is harmless to fish, animals and vegetation. This program seemed to be very 
effective and we plan to expand it in 1970. 

Due to the enlarged number of new homes and developments and the restricted use of D.D.T., it was deemed 
necessary to bring into effect a more modern form of mosquito control for the Town. The purchase of a Fog 
Generator seemed to solve the problem and was found to be very effective, as the fog would drift into un- 
accessable areas and would allow us to cover more territory in a shorter time. This has to be carried on in 
the evening between eight and twelve o'clock when the mosquitoes are out. 

In concluding this report, I would like to thank the Town Manager and the Board of Selectmen for their support 
throughout the year. On April 18, 1969, I was appointed Tree Warden, due to the death of Mr. John W. Babine.

Redevelopment Authority 



The Members of the Wilmington Redevelopment Authority send greetings to the citizens of the Town of Wilmington, 
and are proud to present the Annual Report of the Authority. 

As was reported in the 1968 Annual Report, the Authority was requested by the Board of Selectmen and the 
Finance Committee to study the feasibility of undertaking a land assembly project in the Eames Street Indus- 
trial Park as an alternative to the more costly development project. 

This study was made during 1969 and shows that a land assembly project could be undertaken and would be of 
benefit to the Town. As a result of the study, the Authority has completed a redevelopment plan for a land 
assembly project only. The plan has been presented to the Planning Board for their study and action as re- 
quired under the law. A finding by the Planning Board is expected early in 1970. 

The Authority presented the proposed Redevelopment Plan to the Board of Selectmen in December, 1969. That 
Board has scheduled a Public Hearing as required by law, for January 8, 1970. The Authority is hopeful of 
approval by the Board of Selectmen. If approval is forthcoming, the Authority will present at the Annual 
Town Meeting, an article requesting funds to proceed with the project. 

It is the fervent wish of the Authority that 'the project be approved and completed so that this very valuable 
industrial land, which now contributes next to nothing to the tax base of the Town, can be returned to the 
tax rolls and help ease the ever-increasing tax burden on the Real Property owners. 

During this year, the Authority unhappily received the resignation of Mr. J. Robert Evans, the State-appointed 
member. Mr. Evans has moved to New Hampshire and can no longer be a member. The Authority thanks Mr. Evans 
for his hard work and wise counsel during his three years on the Authority, 

At the time of the writing of this report, the Governor has not yet appointed a new State member. 

As has been the practice in past years, the Authority again this year has sent copies of the minutes of its 
meetings to the Board of Selectmen, the Planning Board, and the Finance Committee. It is hoped that this 
practice has helped these boards to follow the progress of the Authority. In a continuing effort to help 
these boards and committees to be as fully informed as possible, the Authority will continue this practice 
during the next year. 

The Wilmington Redevelopment Authority wishes to thank the Boards, Committees, and citizens of the Town, whose 
splendid cooperation has helped us in reaching the threshold of Project Execution for the Eames Street 
Industrial Park.

During a three day hot spell in June, a new record was established for the maximum number of gallons pumped in 
a day. Although the total pumping capacity was more than adequate to meet this peak demand, the high flow 
through the distribution systems scoured rust and sediment from the old, unlined cast-iron pipe lines re- 
sulting in dirty water in several sections of Town. To combat this problem, it will be necessary to clean 
the system by extensive periodic flushing and by cleaning the old unlined pipes with mechanical equipment, an 
expensive procedure. It is intended to carry out this program as soon as possible within the limits of avail- 
able funds and personnel. 

A gravel-packed well was constructed in the Salem Street wellfield, and engineering work continues on the 
design of a pumping station and 12-inch water main connecting the new station to the distribution system. It 
is expected that construction will start in the spring of 1970 and be completed by late fall. 



44 



An increase of 25% in the water rates for 1970 was announced in December. This step was necessary because of 
a large increase in the cost of borrowed money for the new Salem Street station and pipe line, for increased 
labor and material costs and for anticipated maintenance costs, including pipe line cleaning and painting of 
the Hillside Way standpipe. 

Mr. Edmund H. Sargent, Superintendent of the Department, was retired in November having reached the mandatory 
retirement age. Mr. Sargent gave forty-one years of unstinted service to the Water Department. Mr. Kenneth 
Motschman, Assistant Superintendent and Water Department employee for twenty-four years, was appointed to 
succeed Mr. Sargent. 

Mr. William K. Irwin, Commissioner, resigned after five years of service, Mr. Robert G. Mullarky was appointed 
to succeed Mr. Irwin. 

SANITARY SEWER SYSTEM : 

There was one new sewer connection in 1969, bringing the total sewer services to 26. 

The proposed development of a new Industrial Park in the south end of Town and the possibility of effluent 
from a chemical plant polluting drainage to the Aberjona River, resulted in Town Meeting action authorizing 
the expenditure of $5000. for an engineering investigation relative to the installation of a trunk sewer from 
and in Eames Street to the MDC connection. The Town also authorized the borrowing of $250,000. as its share 
of the project cost contingent upon Federal and State aid. Although the engineer's report was completed by 
the end of the year, the question of funding remains to be resolved. 



Veterans^ Agent 



The Wilmington Veterans' Agent respectfully submits his annual report for the year 1969. Paul A. Farrell, 
Veterans' Agent and Mrs. J. Meads, Secretary. 

Veterans' Services is governed by the General Laws of Massachusetts, Chapter 115, with strict compliance to 
this chapter, the rules and policies of which governs the disbursement of aid. 

Benefits are for the needy veteran and his immediate family who have been subjected to unforeseen needs. 
Final approval of benefits comes from the Commissioner of Veterans' Services, Boston, Massachusetts. 

The appropriation for 1969 was $75,000 as voted at the annual Town Meeting. 

Total expended for aid to Veterans and their families was $67,553.29. Total reimbursements from settled 
assignments on accident cases amounted to $1,827.50. Of this amount, because 50% is shared by the Town, the 
Town's share is $913.75. 

The total amount has been turned over to the Town Treasurer, and the Commonwealth has been notified so ad- 
justment of any monies can be made before State reimbursements to the Town. 

Case load varies from time to time. The work load of this department continues to increase with new and 
changing benefits and/or laws pertaining to Social Security and Education. Also, the returning Vietnam 
Veterans who are now being aided add to a great deal of paper work to the ever increasing work load. 

Appropriation for 1969 $75,000.00 

Total Benefits paid 1969 $67,563.29

Shawsheen Valley Technical School 



The year 1969 has proven a most significant one. After many years of planning, our school project has become 
a reality. Although this has been the subject of discussion over a long period of time, I feel that it has 
been worth waiting for in view of the extensive research done in order to give our community one of the finest 
schools of this type in the country. The progress of building has been very gratifying, and all of us look 
forward to 1970 when the doors of the school will open and offer opportunities to so many people, both young 
and old. 



The School Committee continued to meet on the second and fourth Tuesdays of each month at the temporary Dis- 
trict Office located at 240 Cambridge Street, Burlington. The membership and terms of office are as follows:

Bids for construction of the school facility were opened on January 22, 1969 and the Committee voted to accept 
the low bid of James J. Welch Company, Inc., Salem, Massachusetts, in the amount of $3,826,739. Construction 
started in April at which time the Clerk of the Works, Mr. Michael J. Boyle, was employed to represent the 
School Committee. The carpenters were on strike for a six week period which delayed the start of construction. 
However, it was felt that this delay may not be too serious as many of the subcontractors were engaged in 
planning and fabricating various items required for the building of the school. 



56 



Bonds in the amount of $2,000,000 were sold to the First National Bank of Boston Syndicate for 10 years at 
4.75% as the initial step in the financing of the school. Notification was received from School Building 
Assistance Bureau that the estimated total cost of $4,863,238 was authorized and that the estimated grant is 
$3,161,105. 

The Building Committee was active in working with representatives from the Architects' office. 

Due to the increased activity, two new members were added to the school staff, Mrs. Frances Dugan as Senior 
Clerk and Mr. Joseph Bas table as Director of Guidance. It is anticipated that early in 1970, a Technical Co- 
ordinator will be employed whose responsibility will be to expedite acquisition of equipment for the school. 

Mr. Wolk was voted tenure as of August 15 having completed three years of service as Superintendent-Director. 

Tentative plans were made to have a cornerstone laying ceremony in the spring of 1970. 

The Committee voted that the name of the school be known as SHAWSHEEN VALLEY TECHNICAL HIGH SCHOOL. 

Our school project was honored by having the plans and special exhibits on view at the Annual Convention of 
the American Vocational Association held in Boston December 5 through the 10th. 

The Committee has become aware of the interest of both the State and Federal Government in promoting vocational 
education. Reimbursement for planning cost was received from the State in the amount of $176,898.05. In addi- 
tion, the District received $72,947 from the Federal Government which is the first payment toward construction 
under the Federal Act 90-576. 

I extend my appreciation and thanks to not only the members of the School Committee who have served so faith- 
fully and gave of their time, both in the regular meetings and the subcommittee meetings, but also to the many 
individuals who have served on the Advisory Boards and the interested citizens who have contributed greatly 
to the success of this project.

REPORT OF SUPERINTENDENT-DIRECTOR 



During the year 1969, the final plans for the school project were completed and approved by the State Depart- 
of Education and School Building Assistance Bureau. We moved into Phase II which was the awarding of bids 
and the start of construction of the school building. In reference to the bids of the subcontractors, it was 
necessary to work together with legal counsel in order to rectify certain matters so that the subcontractors 
could proceed on the project. 

In developing some of the details relative to equipment and furnishings, a number of visits were made to vari- 
ous regional vocational technical schools so that we could benefit from their experience. 

Mr. Joseph Bas table was appointed as Director of Guidance. Mr. Bas table proceeded to arrange orientation 
meetings with guidance counselors of the school systems of the five towns, and later spoke to the 8th and 9th 
grade students. A brochure was developed and printed as were application forms, and these were distributed 
to those students interested in applying to this school. 

Action was taken to review the equipment specifications for the various areas to make sure that they were up- 
to-date and comparable to what is being used in industry. Meetings of the Advisory Committees in the follow- 
ing areas were held: Automotive, Auto Body, Machine Shop, Metal Fabrication, Drafting, Library Resource Cen- 
ter, and Chemical Laboratory Technician. Bids went out on Automotive Shop equipment as well as fixed case- 
work and science tables. These bids were awarded so that there would be no delay in their installation. We 
were able to acquire a considerable amount of TV equipment for our school which conforms with recommended 
specifications and which was purchased at considerable savings. _ 

As a public school, we are eligible for government surplus equipment which may be used to equip our shops. 
We have been advised of such equipment being available, and during this year we visited the following: 
Fritsche Machine Company in Portsmouth, New Hampshire, Riverside Transportation Company, Medford; Harrington 
and Richardson, Worcester; Belmont Vocational School; Raytheon Company in Lawrence. In addition, we are keep- 
ing in touch with the Federal Surplus Equipment Department in Memphis, Tennessee, who advises us as to what 
equipment is available throughout the country and what items could be used in our school. 

Consideration has been given to proposals for developing innovative programs. One was the possibility of 
setting up a training program for library aides; another is a pilot program for the training of special class 
students. This latter program was explored and approved by the Committee and will become part of our Basic 
Mechanic Group. 

During this year, I attended the following conventions and conferences: American Association of School 
Administrators, Atlantic City; American Vocational Association, Boston; Regional Clinic of Vocational Educa- 
tion, Providence, Rhode Island; Annual Summer Vocational Conference, Westfield State College; Conference of 
School Superintendents and School Committeemen, West Harwich. 

Faculty teacher application forms have been printed and distributed. It is anticipated that candidates for 
the various positions will be interviewed and contracts signed early in 1970. 

With the approval of the Committee, candidates for Technical Coordinator have been interviewed and this posi- 
tion is expected to be filled by an individual who would have the responsibility of expediting the purchasing 
and installation of equipment for the school. 

I worked closely with the Non-Teaching Personnel Committee and the Teaching Personnel Committee in establish- 
ing salary schedules and fringe benefits. 

The most important legislative Act is 90-576 which is an amendment to the Vocational Act of 1963. When this 
Act is funded, it will provide considerably more funds for technical vocational education in the state. I 
have been in communication with other school directors relative to legislation affecting our particular 
school or region. There were various bills in the State Legislature and I appeared at hearings on these bills 
for the benefit of our School District. 

Seeing the actual building of our school has been a great source of satisfaction to the members of our staff 
who have worked so diligently in the handling of all details, and to the members of the School Committee, 
and those on our Advisory Committees, with the realization that this project when completed will be one of 
the outstanding schools of its kind in the State.

Sarah D. J. Carter Lecture Fund 



The 60th anniversary program - "Sandefjord - Her Voyage Around the World" - presented on March 28, 1969, was very 
well received by capacity audiences. There were two performances during the school day for the High School 
students and one in the evening for adults. In 1913 the "Sandefjord" was launched to serve the Norwegian Life- 
boat Institution. Fifty years later the once proud and gallant ketch was found, half sunk at her mooring, in 
Durban, South Africa. The Cullen brothers, Bary and Patrick, spent two years repairing and reconditioning her 
for their 627-day around the world voyage with a crew of six young, spirited adventurers. 

The Carter Lecture Fund Committee is privileged to announce that Mr. Stanton Waterman will be in Wilmington for 
a performance at 8:15 P.M. for adults in the Herbert C. Barrows Auditorium on Wednesday Evening, March 11, 1970. 
We are sponsoring, in part, with the Wilmington School Committee two performances during the school day for the 
High School students on Thursday, March 12, 1970. 

Mr. Waterman will present "THE CALL OF THE RUNNING TIDE", a distillation of more than 35,000 feet of film taken 
during hundreds of hours on the sea bottom and along the barrier reefs. It also records with humor and excite- 
ment many of the rare adventures among the islands. Highlights of the film are rarely seen aquabatics of the one 
half ton manta rays, feeding the sharks under water in the Raiatea Lagoon, an incredible slide down a four hun- 
dred foot high Tahitian waterfall, fishing for the giant tuna on a feeding frenzy at sea, sailing the swift out- 
rigger canoes in the Bora Bora Lagoon, the never before filmed weird ballet of the garden eels, "Dirty Old Hermit 
of Tautira, the bulldozer shrimp, the deadly stone fish, lion fish and dozens of other unique reef dwellers, 
ancient and unchanged ways in which the Polynesians harvest the sea. 

This is why Stanton Waterman took his family to live and work with him among the Islands of French Polynesia for 
an entire year. 

The Carter Lecture Fund Committee wishes to express its appreciation to Mrs. John G. Hayward who was a member of 
the committee from 1949 to 1969, serving as secretary and as chairman.

School Committee 



The School Committee of the Town of Wilmington herewith presents its report for the year 1969. The member- 
ship of the Committee was as follows: 

William J. Fay, Jr., Chairman 
Diana C. Imbimbo, Vice Chairman 
L. Barbara Hooper, Secretary 
John Brooks 
Arnold F. Lanni 
Walter McNamara 

A Year Of Decision Regarding Future High School Facilities 

Upon investigation of the prohibitive cost of building a new high school, the Committee decided to work toward 
an addition to the present high school with renovations and updating of the existing high school facilities. 
In working toward this end, the Committee contracted with the consulting firm of Hill and Associates to provide 
the following: 

Phase I_ - Educational Design Report - The Consulting Firm shall prepare a written report, utilizing photographs 
and other graphic materials as needed, which summarizes the significant changes in High School building design 
which have taken place since the last addition to the High School and which are currently accepted design prac- 
tice. This report shall also take into consideration the direction in which current educational design seems 
to be moving, in order that any facility designed on the basis of such a report not be obsolete at the time of 
its inauguration. 

Phase II - Inspection of Present Facilities - On the basis of Wilmington's philosophy of education in respect 
to scheduling and departmental grouping, the Consulting Firm shall inspect the efficiency of each teaching 
station as it is presently used as well as the overall allocation of spaces throughout the complex. 

The Consulting Firm shall prepare a preliminary report summarizing the results of this inspection. Such report 
may include recommendations for altering the use of existing areas to increase either efficiency or utility. 

This report, in preliminary form, shall be reviewed with the Committee before completing work on Phase III 
and IV. 

Phase III - Educational Specification Phase - The Consulting Firm shall, in the light of the two previous pha- 
ses, review and coordinate with the Committee and suitable school personnel to establish specific space re- 
quirements which will be adequate for the foreseeable future. This would include descriptions of specific 
spaces such as multi use spaces and sketches illustrating the use of such spaces. 

Phase IV - Evaluation of Modification Possibilities - The Consulting Firm shall review and evaluate the prac- 
tical area(s) for a proposed addition to and the alteration of the present High School. This review shall es- 
tablish the following: 

A. Maximum utilization of existing facilities. 

B. Suitability from the standpoint of sound engineering and architectural practices. 

C. Ability to fulfill established space requirements. 

D. Ability to fulfill all pertinent State school building requirements. 



60 



E. Relative cost as they may pertain to the School Building Assistance Bureau and State Construction 
grants . 

To illustrate the need for these additional facilities the chart entitled "Enrollment Projections 9 - 12", 
prepared by Hill and Associates and contained in this report, demonstrates the growth pattern of grades 9 - 12. 

At the close of the 1969 school year the Committee conducted a joint meeting with the Permanent Building Com- 
mittee for the purpose of outlining the direction they want to take in regard to land utilization and land needs. 

During the early part of 1970, the specifications for this addition will be reviewed and explored with the 
School Building Assistance Bureau. Following these steps a special town meeting will be held for the purpose 
of (1) requesting the necessary land taking and (2) requesting preliminary architectural fees for the purpose 
of drafting the needed addition. The Committee intends to conduct a series of meetings during which time the 
proposed High School addition will be outlined in detail. 

In other matters involving the operation of the Wilmington Public Schools the Committee dealt with the follow- 
ing: 



1. The Hot Lunch Program was extended to include all schools in the town. This was accomplished by 
preparing lunches in existing cafeterias and transporting them to the necessary schools. 

2. The Committee again entered into collective bargaining with teachers, clerks, nurses and cafe- 
teria personnel on salaries and conditions of employment. The result was the realization of 
salary schedules with the above groups which kept Wilmington in a competitive position with sur- 
rounding communities. 



The Committee entered into a recruitment program which resulted in considering candidates from 
the following colleges and universities visited by administrative personnel: 



Boston College 
Emmanuel College 
Harvard University 
Tufts University 
Salem State College 
Lowell State College 
Regis College 



University of Massachusetts 
Wellesley College 
Northeastern University 
Boston University 
University of New Hampshire 
Springfield College 
Simmons College 



The Committee elected 69 teachers to fill vacancies, 52 for replacement and 17 for new positions 
due to population growth and to allow for curriculum improvements in specialized areas. 

Resignations were received from 45 teachers for the following reasons: 



Prof. Improvement 2 Teach in other Communities 18 

Family Responsibility 4 Marriage 5 

Maternity 7 Leave of Absence _7 

Counselled out 9 TOTAL 52 



One staff member retired during the year - Harold Driscoll, former High School Assistant Prin- 
cipal and Director of Federal Projects. The Committee commends Mr. Driscoll for his thirty- 
three years of outstanding service rendered to the young citizens of Wilmington 

5. The Committee also dealt with Curriculum Development and Improvement, textbook adoption, inno- 
vations in teaching methods, approval of new courses and other matters relating to the operation 
of the Wilmington Public Schools. 



The Wilmington Public Schools were in session for 180 days beginning September 4, 1968 and ending June 26, 
1969. The number of meetings totaled twenty-one (21) regular meetings; six (6) special meetings; six (6) 
subcommittee meetings. This is exclusive of collective bargaining sessions which numbered approximately 
fifteen (15) . 

The Committee extends its sincere thanks to the town departments and town officials and to the citizens of 
Wilmington for their cooperation and assistance during the past year.

In conclusion the Wilmington School Committee honors Harold S. Shea deceased Superintendent of Schools with the 
following tribute in his behalf as voted at the meeting of August 28, 1969: 

A TRIBUTE 

Whereas : 

Harold S. Shea 

faithfully served the Town of Wilmington for nine years as Superintendent of Schools; and 

During that period was a dedicated, resourceful leader of a rapidly expanding public school system; 

Demonstrating himself to be an educator committed irrevocably to the development of youth in the highest tra- 
dition of his profession; 

Giving, without measure, of his resources, talents, vision, and even his life's strength; and, further. 

Was, in Life, a source of inspiration to all his associates, an example to his staff and faculty, a very 
sympathetic parent to other concerned parents, and a patient, understanding link with a younger, and sometimes 
questioning, generation; 

And, in Death, an irreparable loss to the School Department and to the Community, 

Therefore, the School Committee, of the Town of Wilmington, memorializes the Life, Service, and Death of 

Harold S. Shea 

And, further, solemnly declares him eminently worthy of the title, respected above all others throughout 
history :

Acting Supt. of Schools 



I herewith submit the 1969 annual report as Acting Superintendent of Schools. 

It is with a great deal of sadness that I find myself in the position of filing this report on behalf of 
Harold S. Shea, late Supt. of Schools. Harold Shea was Superintendent from 1960 to 1969 and his untimely 
death was a great loss to the community of Wilmington. 

This report will be divided into five categories as follows: 

Elementary 

Intermediate 

High School 

Special Class Program 

General Highlights 

ELEMENTARY 

The 1969 school year saw a change in the structure of the academic week with the phasing in of the "Wednesday 
Afternoon Program." The educational day changed by adding fifteen minutes to the beginning and the end on 
Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday. In doing so, this afforded us the opportunity of dismissing the elemen- 
tary schools on Wednesday at 12:00 noon without violating the twenty-five hour week which is mandated by the 
State Department of Education. This program enabled teachers to meet collectively for the purpose of up- 
dating curriculum, evaluating new textbooks, rendering assistance to students in need of extra help, and meet- 
ing with parents. As a result of this change in the educational week, the following elementary committees 
are diligently at work: 

a) Elementary Science Committee 

b) Elementary Reading Committee 

c) Elementary Language Committee 

d) Elementary Social Studies Committee 

e) Elementary American Heritage Committee 

f) Elementary Arithmetic Committee 

This Wednesday program is constantly being evaluated as to its educational value and quarterly reports by the 
principals are being made to the School Committee. 

The 1969 year saw the appointment of Miss Joanne Myers as principal of the Shawsheen Avenue School. This new 
structure is tentatively scheduled to open sometime in the early part of 1970, will house students in grades 
1-5 and will have a capacity of approximately 750 pupils. 

John Crisafulli was appointed principal of the Wildwood School, effective in the simimer of 1969. 
Mr. Crisafulli, his staff, and students embarked upon a new curriculum organizational program for the 1969 
school year. The aim of this new program is to allow for more individualized student instruction resulting in 
more meaningful learning experiences for each child. Children are grouped homogeneously in the areas of math 
and reading. All teachers in grades 1-5 instruct in the areas of reading, math, and language arts. In 
science, social studies, history, gym, health, music and art, the Program is departmentalized. 

INTERMEDIATE 

The year 1969 saw the phasing in of the family living program at the Intermediate level. After two years of 

research to determine the needs of the community in the area of family living and sex education, the results 

clearly indicated a desire by parents of school children to initiate some type of a program within the framewor 



63 



of the schools that would meet the needs of the child and be acceptable to all segments of the community. 



Work was begun early in 1969 on the writing of a pilot program concerning sex education at this level. The 
final program when completed reflected the joint efforts of members of the community as well as members of the 
professional teaching staff. This pilot program entitled Project Happy , Healthy and Prepared Parents and 
Youth was then instituted at the West Intermediate School late in April in grades seven and eight. The total 
program ran eight weeks. A follow-up study conducted during the summer clearly indicated that the program was 
very well received by parents and students and had obtained a high degree of success in reaching its stated 
objectives. Plans for the immediate future call for a repeat of the program at the West Intermediate School 
and to extend it to the North Intermediate School. 

HIGH SCHOOL 

During 1969 two additional courses were added to the program as follows: 

Minority Groups in America : The course consists of a consideration of various minorities in Ameri- 
can history. Study will center around the arrival, problems faced, and final mergence of the mi- 
nority group with the Host Society. 

Enrollment will be open to members of grades 9-12 and will, I believe, be sufficiently flexible 
to be able to challenge those of grades 12 while not leaving behind those of grade 9. 

"Minority Groups in America" will be an elective course, but will have the full status of a regular 
major course. It will meet five times a week and students will receive a full five credits. 

As to why this should be a course unto itself rather than a part of the present Problems of Demo- 
cracy course, there is a great variety of problems or subject areas that should be covered. There 
is just not enough time to devote to a complete consideration of minority groups. 

Literature of American Minority Groups : The reasons for establishing this course were: (1) to 
broaden understanding among the students of the groups making up American Society; (2) to encourage 
students to understand the relevance of others' experience to their own experience; and (3) to 
introduce into the High School elective courses in English. 

The advantage of teaching this course separately, instead of as part of the regular English course, 
is that the teacher and students would be able to concentrate on specific, limited obj ectives , that 
are already defined in the comprehensive English course. Furthermore, it would be a needed experi- 
ment in what happens when students choose to study a particular course. 

The High School entered into its first full year of computerized services in the area of scheduling, grade 
reporting and attendance. This added service, particularly the scheduling aspect, has provided a more ac- 
curate distribution of classes into a building which is already crowded. 

The daily class loads of all English teachers were reduced from five to four to allow for the extensive prep- 
aration and corrections which are necessary in this particular course. In addition it allowed for an inten- 
sive in-service English program during the 1969 year. 

The area of Drug education was explored by a Drug Committee headed by Harold Garrett, Assistant High School 
Principal. Various films were previewed by teachers and small groups of students. The film entitled 
"Marijuana" was purchased as the best possible film. In addition, future immediate plans call for this com- 
mittee, in close cooperation with other community officials and parents to embark on the goal of creating a 
curriculum that will meet the needs of the youth of Wilmington. 

SPECIAL CLASS PROGRAM 

This all important program was restructured entirely this year with the implementation of Project S.E.E.M. 
(Special Education, Education Mutual) a federal cooperative program involving Wilmington, Woburn, Stoneham, 
Reading, North Reading and Lynnfield. 

Basically, this program provides for the following: 

a) It provides a richer educational program on a regional basis than can be accomplished on indi- 
vidual town basis. 



64 



b) Grouping children by chronological age, I.Q. and teacher judgment makes for a better educational 
placement for each child. 

c) Having children placed into four age groupings narrows the wide variance of age span that could 
exist in some classes. 

d) Placing children into one of eight classifications allows teachers to make better use of in- 
structional materials and teaching practices within the group and with individual children. 

e) Every trainable and educable pupil can be further helped to reach his fullest potential in be- 
coming a self-sufficient member of his community. 

Future plans call for this project to encompass the areas of emotionally disturbed, the hard of hearing, and 
an intensive Work Study program. 

HIGHLIGHTS 

Some highlights of the 1969 year were: 

a) Psychological Services were made available to students in all grades by the hiring on a part 
time basis of two School Psychologists during 1969. Dr. James Stewart and Dr. Harriet Allen 
have been extremely instrumental in assisting administrators, guidance personnel and teachers by 
assisting with a number of students who are so vitally in need of this particular type of service 

b) The Teacher Aide program was formulated during 1969 after Wilmington was successful In receiving 
federal funds under Public Law 90-35 to train teacher aides. These sixteen aides assist in the 
duplicating, mimeographing, typing, correcting of tests, attendance recording, lunchroom super- 
vision to name a few. They have been a welcome addition to the staff and we salute them for a 
job well done. Their role in assisting teachers in nonteaching chores has enabled classroom 
teachers to devote more time to teaching and classroom preparation. 

c) The addition of staff members in the areas of Reading, Art, Physical Education, and Music has 
enabled these specialists to increase the classroom visitations to all elementary classrooms. 
Presently all elementary classrooms are instructed by a music specialist on a weekly basis. 
One additional member in the Art Department has made the following "once a week" improvements 
in the following areas: 

1) all first grades 

2) all four room buildings 

3) all special classes 

The Physical Education Department visits elementary classrooms on a weekly basis in grades 1-6. The Reading 
Department has focused attention on grade one in particular whereby one member of that department concentrates 
entirely in this area. 

d) The Summer School Program concluded with 289 students receiving instruction in English, history, 
mathematics, typewriting, reading and driver education in grades 7 - 12, and 286 children re- 
ceiving assistance in reading and arithmetic in grades 2-6. 

e) In the area of health services, physical examinations for pupils in grades 1, 4, 8 and 11 were 
given to 1455 students. Vision tests were given to 4673 students, hearing tests to 4701 students 

f) The soccer program which is offered on a varsity level for high school boys has created a great 
deal of interest and has resulted in more than thirty-five participants taking part in an inter- 
school activity after school hours furnishing instruction in body skills and movement in compe- 
tition directed toward worthy use of leisure time. 

g) The Summer Head Start Program for disadvantaged pre-school children continued during 1969. The 
total enrollment in this program numbered 41. This educational program continues to meet with 
success and high praise from federal and state officials who have observed it in action.
